Hi,

I'm pretty new to Windows 8 and I'm trying to join this Lenovo Ultrabook to our domain.  I'm logged in with the primary account (I think it's a local admin, but I can't even find where to check for that in Windows 8.1)... when I hit the "change settings" from the system properties, the "Network ID" button is grayed out.  And I believe that's where I need to go to join it to a domain.

Now, I understand that the Windows 8 Home edition cannot do this, but I also can't figure out where to find if it's Home, Pro, or Enterprise.  When I go to the system properties it just describes the OS as "Windows 8.1" with no other information.  Can anyone help me out with this headache?  Thanks!
