Q: Is it possible to network some PC’s which are running Windows 7 home premium?

The MS website seems to suggest that it is but a sales guy I just spoke to said it wasnt possible and that I would have to be running Windows 7 professional ?

    You’ll be just fine with Home Premium

    If you are running Windows 7 Home Premium on any network it will work just fine. There is a difference between being networked and joined to a domain. The sales person may have misunderstood you.

    If you are trying to join it to a domain you will not be able to do this. To join windows 7 to a domain you will need Windows 7 Professional or higher.
