    it usually creates a Homegroup for you if it doesn't find other homegroups, I remember that.
    so what you should do it's leaving the current homegroup


    and then you should get the option to join the other homegroup you had before. well I guess this is what you mean. "homegroup ID" is something I couldn't figure out.
    I hope that's what you were talking about.

    it could also be the computer name, which is on system (win+pause) and then you can change your PC name.

    I better add both things so I will make sure I give a better answer.
