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?
