However, I can't join my domain....the domain field is grayed out.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Ok fine, can you verify if the workstation service is running from start> services.msc. If stopped start it.
Also, confirm if network drivers are installed

Also check to make sure the correct protocols are installed. Right Click the NIC and choose properties. "Client for Microsoft Network" is present

Well, as you can see from the pictures above, it doesn't appear that I'm running 'home' version.  I thought that at first, too.

Are you sure this is a "Pro" version or upwards, and not just the "core" version? Like with previous OS's you can't join "Home" versions to domains.

It's the same install that I've used on 3 other machines....wait a minute....this is the only one that has a 32bit install....could that make a difference?

If you did an in place upgrade, the technical preview does not change the original edition of windows that was on the machine. So if the original was not pro/enterprise, it still won't be. The screenshot from your original question does  not indicate that you are running pro or enterprise, so I am guessing (with some confidence) that the original OS on the tablet was not domain-join capable. Which is consistent with most the latitude line. Dell's business tablets are generally venue pro lineage.

Showing that it is the 'core' edition was the answer.

Click start/settings/Work access you will have the option to upgrade. See in the list to join a domain you need the pro version and is available for $99.

Then why did you accept the comment you did as the answer? I was the first who asked you whether you were using the "core" edition.
