Run "DCPROMO" form the command prompt to start the domain controller configuration process.

This will start a wizard to walk to through it.

However it's not always as easy as just running dcpromo, you have to have a DNS server set up (and it can even be on the server you're promoting) before you migrate it.  The following web site has an excellent walk through for doing this...
