Master data Services database creation: Unable to look up specified user account

I have recently downloaded Sql Server Developer 2019 edition on to my home windows 10 pro laptop . I am using the Master data services creation wizard to create database but keep getting the error: "Unable to look up specified user account"

From what I have read this is due n the service account for the SQL Server service, MSSQLSERVER, has inadequate permissions to query Active Directory and cannot resolve the domain account of the user who is attempting to create the database.

My laptop is not part of a domain and the account I am using to create the database has admin rights and is able to create a database in management studio.

Any ideas where I could be going wrong?

Try this. Create a new local user, assign it to be the account that runs all sql services.

Then retry the installation.
