How do I make a Server2012 a domain controller?

Sorry guys - my first Server2012 installation :-)

I have just installed a new virtual Windows Server 2012.
I have configured this with a static ip and named it SERVER-DC.
I have added the DNS Server role and then the Directory Service role.

How The **GG*** do I make this a domain controller???
Ok the guys from MS relocated the DCPROMO so i now have to start it from within the Server Manager.
The problem is that it seems like I can only make this a DC for an existing domain??

HOW ON EARTH DO I MAKE THIS SERVER A DC FOR A NEW DOMAIN??? :-)
