Attach Windows 8 to a Domain


My personal test lab has a fully functional Windows Domain in order to properly test my applications for corporate networks.  As a result, I require all of my windows boxes, when possible, to be attached to my domain for further testing purposes.  Since I’ve just added a few Windows 8 boxes, I had to “learn” the attachment process all over again.

After the system reboots, I’m presented with the customized disclaimer message I configured for my domain users… which was the expected results.

Now that my system is attached to the domain, I’ll want to log in with my Domain account…

Then I’m presented with the new default windows 8 screen…

But let’s say I want my domain account to be linked to my Windows Live account.

Warning… the tab button does not work on this user/pass screen… grrrr!
