Transferring ownership of windows 8

So I've sold this computer, and the new owner is picking it up Sunday.

Currently, when I turn it on, I have to log into my Microsoft account.

How do I go about making it so he logs into HIS Microsoft account when he turns this computer on? I don't want him, and I'm sure he doesn't want to, have to use MY Microsoft username / password every time he turns the system on.

Of course I'll be giving him the oem dvd and it's product key.

Thanks in advance

  1. format the HDD and reinstall Windows using the DVD
  2. I have done that, but it asks me to 'trust this computer' and enter username / password.

    I'm going by memory. I'll re install again and see if I can just skip the part where it asks me for my Microsoft account information.

    You can install with a local account and password. If he wants to reinstall with his MS ID, he can go for it.

    If you do not see the option for Local Account, enter a bad MS ID and password. It will then prompt you create a local account.
