Windows 7: Leave A Domain - How?

Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit

A) At least that's the message I got when I tried.
B) I think that would be the best choice, really. It's brand new so I don't have any files to lose.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

There are also programs that will pull the Office key, like Magic Jellybean, but I would still check if you are allowed to use that license.

You don't boot the OS. You boot from the DVD/CD.

So, did they explain why they won't ease the restrictions on the machine, and compound on whether or not it was technically your property? The legalities of this entire situation have me a bit uneasy.
