Can Windows 10 use my Office 365 Account for Sign In?

I am building a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro (64 bit). Because I am on a domain, the install (very easily) goes with a local account. Now that Win 10 is installed when I attempt to 'add a Microsoft account' and use my Office 365 (small business premium - not consumer box) I get an error 'your email or password are incorrect' (I have verified the email and password are correct and in use on several other devices).

The goal is to have computers only use the O365 account so OneDrive, Store, settings, etc. all use single account.

So my question, that I cannot find an answer to, is:

- Can Windows 10 use an Office 365 subscription account as the User Account (based on this MS info, it can: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/getstarted-microsoft-account).

- If yes, Windows 10 can use an Office 365 account as its User Account, why is it not accepting the Office 365 credentials?

I did find this page on Win 10 Version comparisons:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/Compare

It appears the Home version will not be able to connect to AAD and therefore cannot use an O365 account.  Home versions will need to connect with a MS Live ID or use a local account.
