Unable to get Windows Authentication to work in IIS7

I have a site I need to have a login prompt appear.
I disabled Anonymous and enabled Windows like I used to do in IIS6.
But I get a 401 error on the page now saying I'm unauthorized.

How can I have the site prompt for the login?
Note: I want the user to enter domain credentials.

Thanks
Ron

IIS 7 has lots of differences and configuring WIndows Authentication is a pain as it isn't a "one-click" checkbox like it was in IIS 6.

This website has step-by-step instruction:
http://www.iis.net/ConfigReference/system.webServer/security/authentication/windowsAuthentication

Thanks.
I tried that and I still cannot get it to work.
There has to be something I'm missing.

What web browser are you using to view the site?

Also, if you go to IIS 7, click the Website name in the left column, go to Authentication, what do you have?  On mine here, all are disabled except for Windows Authentication.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

IE9
Firefox

All are disabled except WIndows.
Provider is NTLM
Extended is Accept
Kernel-mode is unchecked

On mine at least, it's the following:

Kernel-Mode:  Checked
Extended:  Off
Provider (in this order):
    Negotiate
    NTLM

Maybe try mimicking these settings?

Nope.
Mimicked these and still no dice. :-(

Hrm, i'm stuck then.  Maybe check the event viewer on the server and see if you see domain errors?

Gave up.
Rebuilding servers from scratch.  Hoping something is wrong with these and new OS's will fix it.
