The only question that I have about your post is where you explained the DHCP and DNS Servers, Did you refer to some hardwares or just windows services? do we need to by any extra hardware or just we need a good switch or router like an unmanaged D-link 10/100 fast switch or what?

Thanks again for your time
If all your systems are Windows 7 64bit then go with Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit. You will have better compatibility with 64bit drivers etc.

As Brady stated DHCP and DNS are roles that are required for AD and a Domain. If you do not have servers that are already providing DHCP and DNS then you can add the “Roles” when you create your domain. In fact I believe the Windows Server 2008 R2 will install them automatically if it cannot find any suitable servers.

Ok give me a bit of time to post the next part of setting up your domain. -WS

Edit: A good layer 3 switch is best, however they are expensive, so a good layer 2 switch will work just fine, keeping your traffic in check and efficient.

Dell has some well priced switches and a great warranty.

Here is the install for a Domain on Windows Server 2008 R2:

Note: You do not need to install WINS. It is only for very old computers before Windows XP.

Or if you have installed Windows Server 2008 R2 already. Make sure you have all windows updates:

Here is the DNS and DHCP stuff:
