I received a Toshiba Satellite L750D-14R which has a COA Sticker on the bottom declaring that it shipped with Windows 7 Home Prem.
Since I didn't have the password, I had to take control of the original owners account using Linux, that done, I was surprised and pleased to see that it was now running Windows 10 Pro!
OK, so I'm now in effect the previous owner, but I'm having my head pecked by Microsoft because my Hotmail/Outlook Mail account details are out of date, also I'm receiving the same notices regarding his Gmail account.
Since I have no interest in his accounts, I have constantly ignored these requests and also for emergencies sake, I've created my own "Local Account".
I would dearly like to eradicate the original owners account, but first I need to create and link the machine to a new Outlook.com address in my name.
I really want to keep this machine separate from my own two Windows 10 machines, hence the new email account.
The problem I now have is that despite configuring the account "Online" and "seeing" that my new machine is identified, I can't yet sign in using the MS identity.
How do I achieve this please?
