Dont enter a Microsoft Account.
The section to enter/create a Microsoft Acoount
OR SKIP THIS STEP
Step 15: On this screen, you’ll be asked to enter your Microsoft account ID (your Hotmail, Outlook.com or MSN email) and password. Type Microsoft account ID and password before clicking Sign in button.
While it’s a good idea to sign-in using your Microsoft account (there are many benefits), you can create a local account by clicking Skip this step.
Step 16: If you have clicked Skip this step, you’ll see the following screen where you can create your local user account by typing your name and password.
Step 17: Next, you’ll see an option to sign-in to Windows 10 using PIN instead of password.
According to Microsoft, PIN is safer than a long password. If you want to use a PIN to sign-in to Windows 10, click PIN me button.

No, a factory reset isn't required.
If you want to switch from a Microsoft Account to a Local Account, try this:
1. Open Windows Settings
2. Press on "Accounts"
3. You should see your Microsoft Account
4. Press on the 2nd link (the one under "Manage my Microsoft Account"), Windows will ask you for your Microsoft Account password. Confirm that you want to switch to a local account.
