Can't bypass Office 365 Trial on startup

i got my Eve V last summer and i’m passing it on to a friend’s college kid-in-need. I reset it, and she’s trying to boot it up. She’s at the page to start the free Office 365 Trial, and the NO is grayed out. it’s impossible to bypass this, forcing you to buy it. Is there a way to bypass this without having to buy it, install it, then cancel it and uninstall it?

Is this during the windows installation or when the user is logged into windows? I don’t have a fresh install ready at the moment but I can think of a couple of reasons why it might be grayed out.

Uninstalling office from the settings or configuration panel might fix the issue as well.
