Hello!

I'm trying to setup the Windows insider program. Am trying to Switch account as seen in the screenshot below. The switch account button is not active, and I am unable to register the business account which I have linked to this system. Is there a way I can undo the linkage so that I can link the correct personal account?

Thank you!

My initial thought is that....
You will need a personal Microsoft Account.
IF you do not have one then one would need to be created

IF and when you have a personal Microsoft Account, you can then add that account to the problem machine as a member of the local administrators group (not a standard user).
Login to the machine with that account and see if you can use that method to

NOTE: Before proceeding make sure that you take steps to backup your critical data as well as perform a disk image of your existing install, so you have a strong fall back option in the event that things do not go as expected.
