I have a new install of Windows 8 Home and am trying to log in to a network share. The problem is that it is trying to force me to log in with PCname\username and the share is expecting only uname. If I click on the change username button it is still forcing me to use PCname\username and wont let me change it.
I had the same problem with a Windows 7 Professional box and found this solution:
But there’s no local security policy on the windows 8 box, I was thinking maybe because it’s Home and the Win 7 is professional?
Does anyone have a workaround so I can access the network share on my win 8 box?

Since you have found the solution in Windows 7 and having issue with Windows 8, it is better to ask this issue in Windows 8 forum as Rick said. Thank you for your understanding.
