Hi,
The Windows web server R2 machine, is orginally having a Workgroup only. Now I want to have a domain name which is

domain1.com

for it, but I got this error. Any ideas?

Exactly what the error says: you do not have an AD DC.
Here's an article on how to install/promote your server: https://support.cloudshare.com/entries/21462042-How-to-setup-and-configure-a-Domain-Controller-on-Windows-Server-2008-R2

Sorry, "Add role" is disabled in Fig 1. The server is in fact Web server 2008 R2. do you think this is the reason, as it is prohibited to have Active directory in this version? thanks

Yup, you cannot use a 2008 Web Server as an AD DC.
Here's a comparison between versions: http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/C/6/FC6006B5-866E-42C1-88F8-9AC4B8BC610D/WS%20Brand%20Pages%20-%20Editions%20Comparison%20Guide.pdf
