Warning : Before you change a computer's membership from a domain to a workgroup, be sure that you know the user name and the password for an account in the local Administrators group. You cannot log on after you remove the computer from the domain
Logon as Administrator. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. The System Properties dialog box is displayed.
On the Computer Name tab, click Change. On the Computer Name Changes dialog box, select Domain and enter the name of the domain in the text box, as shown in Figure 1 below. In this example, the computer currently named hq-res-wrk-o1 is joined to the Reskit domain.
Provide user name and password credentials to show you have the appropriate permissions to join the desired domain.
When the Welcome to the domain message appears, click OK. You will need to restart you computer for the change to take effect.
Follow the Article :
You should be able to join the domain 'the old fashioned way' under computer | properties | computer name | change | enter the domain name.
However you cannot run the connector or use the client backup. Keep in mind there is 10 years difference in the OS's :-)
Sorry ram_kerala I should have refreshed before posting similar information.

You cannot add hyper-v role on windows 2012 essentials edition
You atleast have to have windows 2012 Standard edition
What you can do, you can try if VirtualBox (Freeware Software) \ VMware Workstation (trial) can be installed on 2012 essential edition and if you are able to do that, then you can install virtual instance of XP
Its my fault
understood the question in wrong way
please delete my earlier comment if possible
First think was to join the domain the old school way but I get this error:
"The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain-name": the specified server cannot perform the requested operation"
