Adding computer to the domain

Hi there
A few weeks back i had a bit of a naming issue with a computer being added with a duplicate name and this took the other machines SID and then i had to remove and re add the other machine
now i have added the machine back to AD (New Machine) it has joined but says there is not a valid computer account for this machine
when i check AD the account is there but no OS info has filled in.

i have removed and readded this machine but it does not seem to work.

you should also delete the computer record in AD (using dsa.msc) when you remove the PC from domain.
