You'll get this error if you have opened any shares on the Domain controller before running DCPROMO.

If you have drives mapped onto the DC, unmap them before adding the machine onto the domain.
The drives mapped (or indeed any shres open) will be in the name of the logged on user, and when you try to add the machine to the domain using the domain\Administrator user, it conflicts with the shared user.
