Hello,as the title says, my new Windows 7 Home Premium notebook cannot join a Windows server 2003 dominion. A real PITA!! I am a newbie on these connection problems and would appreciate your step by step instruction on how to overcome this restriction. As an aside note, why would Microsoft put that restriction when millions of people use notebooks?

It's a restriction that is inherent in Home editions of Windows 7. Microsoft put the restriction on Home editions because home users don't normally have a Widows Server. That is more usual in businesses, who will buy Windows 7 Professional.

OK, I understand that, but, is there a way to connect? I am not willing to outlay the difference to upgrade to Professional
