  1. Would like more than one login on a single device


    I have a dual-boot of 2 different builds of Windows 10 on a single device (a laptop computer). I would like to have both of these boots to be my Microsoft account so I can synchronize between them. But when I try to convert my second one from a local account to my Microsoft account, I get the message that I am already on this device.


    Counld Microsoft change its Windows code so that Multiple instances of a single Microsoft account could sign in on the same device (not as separate users on a single boot but as separate users in a dual-boot situation)? I have the two Windows 10 installations on separate partitions.

    :)

    Resolving login issues

    If your device doesn't run in safe mode, the next step that we suggest is to run a repair using a boot media. Here are the steps:

    • Restart your device.
    • Upon start up, keep on pressing F12 to check if your device respond to BIOS.
    • Once you've accessed the BIOS setup screen, follow the step-by-step guide on Yashwanth Kotakuri's

      post
      on how to repair start up using a boot media for Windows 10.

    Let us know if you need further assistance with the repair.
