I am attempting to run DCPROMO on a new 08 R2 standard instlall and I have got the message that you need to run “adprep /forestprep” to do this , I have gone to the 32 bit existing domain controller and run “ Adprep32 /forestprep”  from the 2008 r2 cd , it seemed to update the schema but I am still getting the message you you need to  run “adprep /forestprep” the functional level is 2003 for the domain and server
