Something went wrong OOBEKEYBOARD OOBEREGION in Windows 10 (And How to Fix Them)

There is a good chance that you will encounter any of the following errors while installing Windows 10 on your PC: Something went wrong OOBEKEYBOARD, OOBELOCAL, OOBEREGION and etc.

This happened to me in VirtualBox. These errors caused by the Out-of-Box Experience setup wizard (OOBE) which customize your Windows 10 experience. If you get these errors there are a couple of things you could do to fix them. You can click Try again or Skip button. If that is not working, power off and restart your PC.

If none of the previous solutions have worked for you, you need to open Windows CMD and then activate the built-in administrator account to create a new local user to skip the OOBE process.

First, when you landed on one of the OOBE errors (For example OOBEKEYBOARD, OOBEREGION and etc.), Press SHIFT Key + F10 key on your keyboard to open the command prompt.

Then, execute following sets of commands one by one (replace user_name with the actual name of the user you want to create and mypassword with your own password):

net user Administrator /active:yes
net user /add user_name mypassword
net localgroup administrators user_name /add
cd %windir%\system32\oobe
msoobe.exe

After that, power off your computer via power button and power on again. Now the setup will continue and you will automatically sign into the Administrator account (if you encounter any of the previous errors, power off and restart your PC again).

Sign out from the Administrator and sign in to the local user that you created in step two.

Sign out from the Administrator and sign in to the local user that you created in step two.

After everything is done, don't forget to disable the admin account.
