    Vista Home Premium connecting to a Domain

    I was thinking to buy a Vista home premium laptop, many people said me that this OS cannot be directly connect to my office SBS2000 Server Domain. Is that correct? If yes, then I’ll buy this edition or will go for some another one.

    Please provide your advice.

    Who told you that Vista Home Edition will work with Server. You will need Vista Business or Vista Ultimate for the same. Check the complete details provided about the same in this Microsoft Article:

    You can try creating a user in Active Directory that exactly matches the Home Premium user account and password to see if you can work this way.

    I have my doubts - it worked with XP and downlevel clients, but with Vista I can't be sure.

    Other than that, you'd need Business, Enterprise or Ultimate to join and participate correctly in a Domain.

    From Home you can go to Ultimate but not Business or Enterprise.

    There is no direct upgrade path from Home Premium to Business or Enterprise.
