I am on windows XP. Why did you think I'm not?

comment The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation
Nonapeptide, thanks for sticking with me on this. My understanding is that there is no elevated command prompt in windows XP, so I logged in as administrator and here is what I got with the v flag: pastebin.com/m7e938f26

pastebin.com/m44f57fb7 is what I get. I think Daniel is on to something, but I can't do that until I get the proper permissions. The gpresult.exe doesn't show me anything that looks out of place.

I get this: "The RSoP Snap-in was unable to generate data due to the computers permissions" I click OK... and then the Resultant Set of Policy opens. Does this help at all? Thanks Zypher for the clarification!

It says windows can not find rsop.exe. I don't think it's local as it is my own machine and I am the admin and I don't think I would have locked it down in such a way. I am the admin. Thanks.

comment Migration from Workgroups to Domain
Doing this would require more time, how would manage a non-domain and a domain network at the same time? My only real concern would be the file server. I know it's IP address is x.x.x.x so I just hop right on there, but everyone else knows it as //server.

comment Migration from Workgroups to Domain
Thanks. A lot of people complain about slow PCs. I haven't read about copying things over yet, but my concern is that the slowness could be coming from something in their user profile if this includes the registry. Obviously, I could run a registry cleaner, but maybe starting fresh with a locked down PC isn't a bad idea? I knew what you meant about DHCP. We are currently using it and it works well.

Awesome this is exactly what I'm looking for. Would it be better to reinstall the OS? or No?

I checked and all the services seem to be up that windows requires....DNS and then all the AD related services as well.

See my comments to Dan. I don't think that not being able to login remotely is the problem, but rather a symptom of the problem. Thanks!

What services need to be running for the DC to be working.

Dan, Yeah it is. I just checked and I can't log on to the domain nor ping the fully qualified.
