stuck in dual boot, want one to go away

I was trying to install an OS on a DELL 2950 server and using a dell utility DVD. During the install in realized I had hit WINDOWS 2000 as the OS and found it would not see my hard drives anyway. I then found a WINDOWS 2008 DVD and did a full install, but someone there is still a trace of the WINDOWS 2000 install and I am stuck with DUAL boot. To make it worse the WINDOWS 2000 install is the default, so if I ever have to reboot remotely, I will never get it to come back up. How can I get WINDOWS 2008 to be the default and better yet get the WINDOWS 2000 install to just disappear and not be seen again?

open command prompt (Use Run as administrator if UAC enabled)

bcdedit /delete {ntldr}

Open in new window

It will delete the Windows 2000 entry....
if you want to keep both but make win2008 default then let us know

You can also delete the unwanted one by going to Start, type in msconfig, and deleting the unwanted boot option; right-click Computer, Properties, Advanced, Startup and Recovery, and Edit the list, or download use EasyBCD to change or delete boot entries.
