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!
Then click on Advanced Settings to the left and bring up the traditional window for System Properties. Click on Computer Name and use the bottom button. This is the same all the way back through Windows NT4 so it should look very familiar to you.
