I have Windows 7 Professional desktops

1 Windows 8 Server.

How do I make my desktops come up with the old request for Login and password

to log into domain.  Currently comes up to login screen with Owner and Remote selections.

Since I am now on a Windows 8 Domain. do I need a homegroup setup?

Check out this tutorial to find how to join the desktops to your domain

I get the feeling that isn't what you are asking though, please clarify what you are trying to accomplish.

A homegroup is pitiful to the power of your 2008 server.

Although so long as the computer is on the domain you can use the domainname\username format anyhow
