I was using OneNote 2016 without any issues in my previous company laptop. I got a new laptop with windows 7 and office 2013 installed. I have installed OneNote 2016, however, when I click on OneNote icon, I am asked to log into cloud. When I click on "sign-in", I get a office-365 login scree. But, I only have hotmail account and I do not have office 365 account. I am totally stuck because I have stored all the onenote notes in Skydrive. Is there any way to skip this logon screen or is there a way to use skydrive instead of office-365?

I solved my problem using registering these keys. You need to save the below text as .reg file and apply it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote\WebServiceProvider]
"DisableSkydriveSetupOnFirstBoot"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\Common\WebIntegration]
"WebIntegrationEnabled"=dword:00000000

Add the following DWORD value in the registry before running OneNote:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote]
"FirstBootStatus"=dword:01000101

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote\Options]
"BootClippingPanelWithOneNote"=dword:00000000

*For OneNote 2013 change the 16.0 to 15.0

I encountered the same issue with OneNote 2016 (as part of the Office Home & Business Suite). I finally relented and proceeded to sign in to MS. Fortunately, I forgot my password. The dialog skipped the rest of the sign in process and opened OneNote.
