What Windows 7 Professional changes do I make to log into Server 8 Domain

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.

I think this is what you might be looking for


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

Alos you might want this


This combination allows you to ctrl alt del and enter username and password
