Thanks

I tried the following but the Avatar I want to move the existing Live ID to, the Account Management link is grayed out. It only allows the option to create a new ID.

  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and select your avatar.

  2. In Account Management, select “Manage Account”.

  3. In Your Information, select “Windows Live ID”.

  4. Select “Change Windows Live ID”.

        1. If you have another Windows Live ID, select “Yes”.

I'm assuming the account you want to move this WLID to is a local account, meaning it has never been a part of LIVE. If that is the case, here's what you'll want to do:

  1. On the account that currently has the WLID you want to move, change the WLID to something else. This will free up the WLID. 
  2. On the account you want to move the WLID to, there should be an option to make your local account a LIVE account. Do this, and when it asks for a WLID, use the one you just freed up.
