Its pretty annoying, I want a separate image for each.

Will this only be solved if I create two Microsoft accounts?

Create a different account for the second one... i do believe that there is a way to turn off the roaming profile, but alot of the advantages of win 8 are based on that so its probably not a good idea.

Just make a local account on each.. that way you wont have to sign in using microsofts service and you get 2 different sets of settings
