Hey,

Detach the DC from the network and run "dcpromo /forceremove". That gets you around the error you're likely to get above, normally DCPromo checks everything has been done prior to actually demoting something.

** Drop it back to a workgroup before you think about promoting it again ** You absolutely must make it have a new Computer Account, the old one just won't do.

After ForceRemove you should clean meta data for the DC from AD by following this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498

Once you've done all that, and made sure you're no longer getting errors you can rejoin the system to the domain.

Again, make sure there are no errors on join, then finally you can re-run dcpromo to make it a domain controller once more.
