Well I've been trying quite a lot of things, it worked to connect through my other laptop which is not given by my school so there's nothing wrong with the homegroup itself. But I need a way to connect this "domain owned laptop" into my homegroup. It has IPv6 working, all the services are started and I've also deleted idstore.sst without success.

EDIT: The error that comes up is "Windows cannot set up homegroup on this computer"

Do the policies set on the system allow it to be on a homegroup? – Shinrai Nov 1 '12 at 19:08

I have read through windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/…. How can I check that Shinrai? – Sebastian R Nov 1 '12 at 19:21
    
A good friend of mine told me to run gpedit.msc, unfortunately I don't know how to continue from here. – Sebastian R Nov 1 '12 at 19:37
    
Can you change your network location to home, or does that require admin creds? Microsoft lists a couple of GPOs affecting Homegroups here: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee617166%28v=ws.10%29.aspx – TheUser1024 Nov 1 '12 at 20:30

Turn on Network Discovery in Windows 7. Goto Control panel -> Administrative tools -> Services and see if 'Peer Networking Grouping' service is enabled and running.
