I haven't a clue :-)
I have never used dcpromo, but from my dealings with microsoft, dcpromo 
probably is another name for dcdelete :-D

 From what you posted earlier, the domain already points to the new DC, 
you just need to get the DNS fsmo roles.

The problem with the old DC, is not so much the old DC, but with what is 
in AD, if you can be sure that all references to the old DC being in 
charge of anything is removed, then you probably can still use it, but 
there is the problem of lack of DNS info in the old DCs AD.
