in my company i created new domain, same domain name was already used before, Old HDD got problem like Bad cycle error, so i installed OS in NEW HDD and created new Domain with same as old name as old domain name i must use here..
(We had no raid and don't have back up also) some body was configured before me i should have taken backup, but missed it.
while adding users computer to domain i am getting errors, is there any way to solve this,
I think its because of old domain information's still containing users PC they are using XP and Win7 and Server as Server 2008 R2.
and is there any steps i need to do while Adding users system to domain.
Please help me...................................

Dis-join all the PCs/Server's from domain and re-join them pointing to your newly created domain. You also need to repeat the basic exercise all over again such as creating users, groups, group policies etc...
Also for redundancy, you would better setup an additional DC to tackle any disaster situation in future.

I agree with Santosh, you will have to recreate all the users and groups in the new AD and also rejoin all the PC and Servers back to the new Domain.
Also you will have to reconfigure the users profile, as after rejoining to the Domain, they will be getting new profiles.
