  • Its the cleanest / safest method. I'd transfer roles off this server then use dcdiag / repadmin tools to verify health is good before proceeding. Then clean install OS, patch it fully, license it, join existing domain, add active directory domain services, promote it also making it a GC (recommended), transfer FSMO roles over (optional), transfer pdc emulator role (optional), use dcdiag / repadmin tools to verify health, when all is good you can decommission / demote old one (optional).

    Also always install the manufacturer chipset as first step. The chipset allows the operating system to find and use devices integrated into the mother board.

    Also for clarity in forums it is recommended to ask each new question in a separate thread.
