The new NGSC ask after the update and after the configuration of OneDrive for business for the personal OneDrive credentials. It is not possible to finished the setup without an privat account.  Is it a known bug?

Yes but I like to have the personal ondedrive optional and not completely blocked.

I have switched to the NGSC with a few computers with different configurations (with private account, without private account, with Office 365 with old Groove, with Office 365 freshly installed without Groove).

 

All computers ran Windows 10 Pro in its latest stable version (1607). All computers had their OneDrive at version 17.3.6743.1212 (update was done automatically through the normal Windows update).

 

I did not install anything manually!

 

For the computers with Groove I used the /takeover command from

For the computers without Groove I simply entered the Office 365 credentials in the OneDrive preferences dialog box (add account). The account was recognized as "business account" and I was redirected to the Office 365 credential login dialog box.
