I have one DC here at the house. II (by mistake) installed active directory without a DNS server on my machine.  I cannot even bring up the user snap in now without errors. It says it cant find my domain.  I tried a dcpromo to remove active directory and it says it cant find my domain name. Is there another way to remove active directory?
