As I've been taught and someone (I think) has already said:

NT Servers can be:  Primary DC, Backup DC, and stand alone

A Backup DC be promoted to a Primary DC.  Primary DC's are always Primary
DC's.  Your only solution is to reinstall.

Sorry if it's redundant.  Glad to finally contribute.

I beleive you can turn a PDC to stadalone but not the other way around..

Its always better to re-install NT anyway, as you donno what leftover junk
from being a PDC is laying around the registry waiting to bite you
