    First off, we don't have PDC and BDC's anymore. That said,

    > What shuold i do to make this computer a PDC again in the existing domain?

    Why, you just restore the backup

    ok, just kidding.

    1. seize (not transfer) all 5 FSMO roles on the 2nd DC
    2. cleanup the metadata of the crashed DC
    3. install and promote the first DC again
    4. transfer (not seize) all 5 FSMO's back

    I know you will probably not get all this directly, but some research will get you through.

      since you have 2 dc's and no doubt one is a global catalog server, you may want to transfer the infrastruture role to other dc that is not the catalog server.

        That doesn't matter in a single-domain forest, mr. roguecoolman. The IM is only needed to follow objects in other domains in the same forest. When you have only one domain the IM does exactly nothing.
