Good.

Today I'll show you how to create a domain from scratch on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64. This procedure is exactly the same in 32 bit versions and versions that are not R2.

The domain that we create will be called megacrack2.es and will be the first domino of a new forest.

First we have a Windows Server 2008 R2 X64 server. (You can follow this article to see how 2008 installed Windows from scratch but without the passage of sysprep since this server will not be a basis: Installing Windows Server Std 2008 R2 X64 step by step to use BASE).

Now that we have a clean server Windows Server 2008 with the latest patches proceed to make the first settings to prepare the server for a promotion to domain controller.

1.- We started the session as a local administrator.

2.- We set a fixed IP.

3.- Configure a name server (in our case we have called Mega2DC1).

We press on 4.- Home -> Run -> Write dcpromo and click on OK to validate.
