Run dcpromo to remove the old child domain, then run dcpromo again and set it up as the primary domain. You may need to re-install DNS as well to setup correct dns info.

You can make the chid domain as primary domain but you need to remove chid domain first( to do this type dcpromo) and then create parent domain (type dcpromo again after restart. You can restore ADs of previous primary domain only if you have the back up of it, otherwise you cannot do it.
