Colud you help me in joining to a domain with Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows Vista Home Basic? As I know it has no native support for it.

Thanks in advance.

You can with registry edits/updates but this affects the EULA. Are you trying to join an existing domain, or just joining a network (please don't be offended, I'm not trying to ask a rude question). – Dave Jan 3 '13 at 10:45

You can't, it's impossible as there is not support for it. You need Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate for Windows 7 and for Vista only Business and Ultimate.

None of the windows versions having home or basic type has domain login and remote desktop support...

I have seen a windows vista home at one of my friends network and it could connect domain with some registry trick. – androbin Jan 3 '13 at 10:51
@androbin - We can't help with register hacks. – Ramhound Jan 3 '13 at 12:40
@Ramhound Registry hacks are still on-topic for SU. – cutrightjm Jan 3 '13 at 14:19
@ekaj - Feel free to post the solution if thats the case but I refuse to support registry hacks that override license restritions. – Ramhound Jan 3 '13 at 14:31
