Windows HomeGroup Not Offered on Install
I reinstalled Windows 7 because I apparently forgot to set the BIOS to AHCI for my SSD. No real problem doing this, but I noticed I was not offered HomeGroup during reinstall. Why might that be? I inadverently left the computer connected to the Internet through a cable modem and wireless router (D-Link DIR-655), but upon reloading of Windows also noticed there was no Internet connection as I need a RealTek LAN driver installed to get any connectivity. Besides, once I deleted the old partitions on my way to a new install, the driver and any connectivity should have been lost and made no difference to install. But what do I know...I have been around Windows 7 for about 3 days.
Did something go wrong on my install (no HomeGroup) or did having the Internet connected have something to do with this?
