Changed Sql sever instance name

We have recently build one server with the clone of another. Now the new  window server has different  name than the previous one  but the sql server  is seen with the same name.
What are the things that we need to perform  so that we can give the sql server different than the name it got from previous cloning .


Thanks

Thanks for you reply TempDBA

Actually, Windows team did it and I don;t what they did. It doesn't have any kind of  database installed at all. It is just a another replica of the one of server.

But my question is when I see the the sql server instances   I have seen the same name . we now have same  instance    name :   (computer_nameA\IntanceNameA ) in two virtual machine. Actually what we required is newly cloned server should have sql server instance name as Computer_nameB\InstanceNameB.  and How can we achieve it .


Thanks
one more thing I think it might be virtual snapshot of entire machine  but not sure .
