Cannot switch to MS account on new machine

edited August 2021 in General Discussion

New to this forum. Not sure where to post this:

Got a new machine from Micro Center and it's great. I am migrating stuff from my old machine to my new machine. I have a Microsoft account.

On my new machine I want to sign in with my Microsoft account. When I boot up the new machine it signs in on a local account automatically. I have tried Settings > "Sign in with a Microsoft Account Instead" and it does not accept my Microsoft account password on the second password screen.

How do I change from my local account on the new machine to my Microsoft account on my new machine? 

Thanks for any and all information.
