how to link a console profile to a live account

I have had a local console profile for some time and then yesterday created a live account online (not via the console) woops!  When I try and join via the console it tells me that the email address supplied is linked to a different gamer tag.  How can I get these two things to be linked without losing all the game info in the local profile?

Thanks

You will have to promote your local account to a Live one. This will require a new email address that is not already linked to a Live account.

If  you want to use the one that is tied to your current Live account, then you will need to change that one to a different email address which will free the old one up to be used when promoting your local Profile. Information on how to do that can be found here http://support.xbox.com/en-gb/xbox-live/how-to/xbox-live-account-management/manage-live-id.
