the question is do i create an OU and move the computer object under that OU (since i can not apply a policy to the computers folder in ADUC) and apply the defaultdomian policy or do i apply this policy to the users OU of each domain.

the results i want is to each computers under each specific domain to show its domain that belongs to as a default on logon screen.

If you want the Policy to apply to users (regardless of where they login) create a User OU and apply the policy there.  If you want to be workstation specific create an OU for the workstations and apply the policy there.

Well since its a policy that applies to computers, i would recommend moving the computer accounts in AD into an OU and apply the policy under the computer configuration and import the custom ADM template.

You will need to apply this GPO to an Organization Unit that has computers in them. You will need to create four OU's for this to work the way you would like. You will of course also need four separate GPO's to apply the different domains.
