I believe you need to upgrade to Home Premium or better to get that functionality...

Computers must be running Windows 7 to join a homegroup.

HomeGroup is available in all editions of Windows 7.

In Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic, you can join a homegroup, but you can’t create one.

Please check this Microsoft article: Why can't I join a homegroup?

On the face of it, you can only join the homegroup your friend creates, but you can't create a homegroup yourself unless you upgrade to Windows Home Premium.

If you want to upgrade, your best way is to use Windows Anytime Upgrade, there should be a shortcut to it under Start>All Programs>Windows Anytime Upgrade.
