Hello I have a Hotmail  account and I use it to log in Windows 8.1, only used for test porpoise.

I have another office365 account and I want to use to log in windows 8.1 to work. I can add this account as user  but when I try to log in with it I get the error "password" incorrect.

Can somebody give me an explanation about this.

thanks

This was for a Microsoft account which I never used as I only signed up for testing purposes. Was just pointing out that losing access to the Microsoft account can be a potential issue here. You are correct though, two-step verification will alleviate this issue.
using a Microsoft account has many advantages as it stores your settings across multiple devices.
So, Can I associate my office365 account as Microsoft account to use it to log in in Win 8?

If yes, how can do it?

Thanks
