question about upgrading from win8 to 8.1
5 months ago

A couple months ago I decided to upgrade to 8.1, and in the process of installing it, I was prompted to create a username/password, which I did.  Prior to that with the OEM win8 I never had to provide a password.

For various reasons I decided to roll back to an image I had saved prior to upgrading to 8.1, so I'm back to win8 and no password again, and prefer that.

My question is this, if I later decide to upgrade to 8.1 again is there a way I can avoid creating the username/password in the process?  I've never upgraded an OS before, so I don't know if this is something new in 8.1 that can't be avoided, or if there's something I didn't know while setting it up that would have allowed me to continue without any password.
