Desktop Gateway Setup - Personal PC on Corporate Power Automate Account

As title suggests - I am working at home on a personal desktop Windows 10 Home machine. I need to use Power Automate based on my corporate account. The gateway seems to be working, based off of the gateway status screen.

I think (I don't know) the failure is at authentication in the online flow to through the gateway to the desktop.  My desktop is in my home and the account I have as the master account to the PC is my personal live account (that's hotmail under a different name).

I've built a flow in power automate and a flow in the desktop.  From Power Automate, I can see the flow name (called it Test) on the desktop.  However - getting an error on that step.

I need to run the flow on the corporate account.  I'm interacting with Sharepoint and Power BI.  I'm not sure I have the right credentials???  I would think it would need my t** account and password - but that doesn't seem to work?  I don't know a domain\username for this computer?  Am I totally going up the wrong tree?

You must use the same work or school account to set up the gateway, to sign into Power Automate, and to log into your Windows device.
