One Personal Gateway to serve two accounts for dashbosards?

When i started using power bi I pro made an account using my work email adress. To move from a test to a commercial account I had to go the EDU route, which meant I ended up with another account (cloud on microsoft.com account). 

 

So in preparation to make everyone who is currently using my dashboards from my first pbi site to switch to the new dashboard (meaning they all need new accounts...tsss), I started rebuilding dashboards on the new account.

 

If I opened the gateway using the new account, the pbi desktop dus not publish to the new pbi site. Moreover, renewing data form pbi site or manually renewing data does not work either. Why is that? It seems useless to install another gateway on the same laptop, so I skipped that suggestion.

 

I'm now left with manually uploading the files to the new pbi site, which is not the purpose of this tool. I need the auto renewal.

How can I solve this ? Does it mean I need to simply setup a second gateway on a second pc/laptop? Or is there anything else?

In short, yes, you either need to uninstall the gateway and reinstall it again using your new account or a second gateway. This is the "personal" part of the "Power BI Gateway - Personal". There is a preview of the Enterprise gateway however:

How do I install a second gateway? Can I do that on a the same computer I installed the first gateway?
