Windows 7 Enterprise - Issue Joining to Domain

Hi All,

Just installed Windows 7 Enterprise onto a new PC (same disc and everything that we always use), and when we try to join to the domain there is a message at the top that says

"you cannot join a computer running windows enterprise to a domain"

Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Essesboy80,
Rebuild is solution too :-), not a desired ,but sometimes the fastest one.
I do not want to blame you for anything, but please next time make sure you post some additional info about your issue. Otherwise you will not be able to benefit from a good advise here.
cheers
Svet.
