Well, first off you'll need to install the Windows 2008 R2 OS following your companies standard server build procedures, or standard DC procedures if you have them.  Your next step depends on whether this is going to be a new forest/domain, with this being the first Domain Controller, or if this is going to be adding a new DC to an existing domain/forest. Please specify.

If you are adding a DC to an existing domain/forest, do you know what the current functional level of the domain/forest is?  Do you know what OS level other domain DCs are at?

I am going to create a new DC in our organization till now we are using workgroup environment. Suppose my company domain name which is register in register.com, so should i mention that domain name (xyz.com--my company  domain which is registered name) or something different. Please clarify, it is very confusing for me.
