  1. Repair Installation of windows 10 on a domain/workgroup account.


    Hi,

    So we know a repair installation is a powerful tool given in windows 10 which can repair current windows installed image without any loss of app - personal data- (and or personal settings).

    But I am not sure about what happens to a domain/workgroup account laptop.

    If I try a repair installation of Windows 10 on such a laptop:

    Will my computer name change?

    Are there any chances of my user profile settings to be deleted and hence result in disconnection from workgroup?

    What exactly might get lost in the process?



    Regards,

    Sourabh

    :)

  2. W10 Won't Install Because of Domain


    Check in the System properties to see if it lists a domain. I've blocked out my domain and computer name, but this screen will tell you if it is a workgroup or a domain.

    The problem is, you don't just accidentally join a domain. Someone isn't giving you all the information. In order to join a domain, you need an authorized account on that domain, a computer account created on that domain, and a domain controller to answer an authenticate the computer. That doesn't happen automatically.

    You should also look in to how the user is logging in. If it is with a local, non-domain account, you may be able to remove the computer from the domain and put it back on a workgroup. Assuming this is an activated computer, I would probably back up the data, wipe it clean, install Windows 10, and then activate with the Windows 8.1 key.

  3. Windows 'domain'?

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing your concern in the Microsoft Community. Follow these steps to find the domain name:

    • Press the Windows key + R then choose System.
    • The name of your computer will be listed as the Full computer name.
    • The domain your computer belongs to will be listed as the Domain. If, instead of Domain, you see Workgroup, your computer
      is not a member of any domain.

    If you have any questions or things you'd like to clarify, feel free to ask.

    Repair Installation of windows 10 on a domain/workgroup account.

    Windows 7 Workgroup help in setting up password

    Thanks for the suggestion, but have done what mussels and the other guy said, I've made user accounts via Computer management console\Local Users and Groups\Users.

    I've set up an account where we admins can control the specific shared folder when logged in remotely *Smile Repair Installation of windows 10 on a domain/workgroup account. :).

    My only problem is due to the command I tinkered with "net use \\PC-01\IPC$ /del" on computer #1, made it disappear from the network/workgroup even if it is joined there.

    Would making it join a fake workgroup eg. workgroup and re joining the original one "501 Computers" fix it?

    EDIT: No need for domain things, this just a small lan of 6 computers 1 of them just named as a Server (not really a dedicated server machine).
