Windows 7: Trying to switch from hotmail.com to live.com for OneDrive

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
 
 
Trying to switch from hotmail.com to live.com for OneDrive

My problem is probably that I tried to switch from SkyDrive using a hotmail acct to OneDrive using a live acct at the same time. Now I seem to be in the useless between state.

I have windows 7 ultimate that had SkyDrive successfully working on xxx@hotmail.com. I wanted a new OneDrive at yyyy@live.com to sync with my Windows 8.1 OneDrive pc.

I uninstalled SkyDrive, downloaded from the Onedrive.com the win 7 OneDrive installer. When I run the installer I get to the Get Started dialog box. I click that button then get stuck on a blank white dialog box. I terminate the installer and it shows a OneDrive under Favorites, but it's the xxxx@hotmail SkyDrive area when I upload to it.

From win 7 I can upload to onedrive.com at yyyy@live.com using FireFox and sync with my win 8.1 pc, but that does me no good for my win 8.1 pc or win 7 Explorer.

How do I get to have OneDrive shortcut in my folder connected to my live.com acct?
