You are not quite clear here.....are you trying to run dcpromo on a machine that is already a DC?  You need to run dcpromo on a second standalone server and promote it to a DC.  Sounds like the machine you are trying to promote is already a DC in some domain..........

Sorry I didn´t post it clear enough.... What I want to do is to change the domain name from XXXX.local to just XXXX. Where and how can I do it?

You don't do that with dcpromo.
