    Aaaaaaaah! Wasted Time: A few minutes after I wrote the below post, Win10 asked for another restart. I said "Yes" and after that I was able to switch to the MSA again. Account on my Machine is also verified.

    I dont know what reason was, for the Problem. And as I did a lot of things, I really cant say what fixed in the end lol
    It was definitely not a restart needed from SFC or DISM.
    Maybe a very long delayed (a few hours) restart order from the MSA Trouble Shooter? Not sure.

    Yesterday, I did a clean Install with Build 10158. When prompted to add / create an Account, I added my MSA and everything worked fine.

    Windows Update then wanted me Verify my MSA to be able to get Insider Builds. Ok then:
    1.) Clicked on "Verify"
    2.) Entered my eMail
    3.) Got the Security Code
    4.) Entered Security Code
    5.) Done. No Error

    After 2 restarts, I still got the 'Pop-In' that says: "Get Insider Builds: Insider Build Settings need some Attention". Next Phase:
    In the Windows Update -> Advanced Screen, I clicked on the "Fix me" Button. Nothing happened.

    I have searched through the Web. As there are only kind-of-Solutions for Windows 8/8.1:
    1.) I decided to switch to a local Account
    2.) Did a restart
    3.) Logged in with the new local Account again

    I went back to the Settings -> Accounts -> Your Accounts.
    1.) Clicked on "Sign In with a Microsoft Account instead".
    2.) No reaction.
    3.) Tried the "Fix me" Button in the Windows Update Section again: The Dialog "Hey, are you an Insider? .." came up, but when I click on "Switch to a Microsoft Account": No reaction.
    4.) Checked the Web again
    5.) Removed the MSA Account completely.
    6.) Repeated the above Steps but still no Luck

    1.) Unzipped the Windows 10 Build 10158 ISO to a Folder and started the Setup.exe overnight [keep Windows and Windows Settings, Programs etc.]
    2.) Can still not add a MSA
    3.) Did a quick search through the Web again and tried the Microsoft Account Troubleshooter for the 'LEFKPM-Problem' - just in case.
    4.) Oh look: Now, when I click on "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead", a white Window with the blue rotating circle appears, that says "Just a Moment". But "Just a Moment" keeps going on and on and on...

    1.) Yes it is a Administrator Account
    2.) I already tried
    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    sfc /scannow

    No Errors was found. Even before I did the reinstall overnight.

    I never had such Problems with Windows 7. Has anyone another Idea? As there is no Windows-Easy-Transfer Tool anymore, I cannot backup my Settings and Files to restore them after another Clean Install. In fact, I had to backup everything manually by copying it piece by piece. I hope I dont have to do this again.
