Important Note – During OOBE, you will not experience any issue using a Microsoft Account during OOBE.

As a primary step to fix this issue set the keyboard language to English during user creation. In an alternative way, you can also use a Microsoft Account to complete OOBE. This will surely mitigate the issue. Furthermore, you can set the keyboard language back to your preferred language after user creation. When the OOBE is done and you are at the desktop area, you are able to rename the current user using these instructions. Open this link KB4026923, If you prefer to create a new local user.
