Removing entries in the boot sequence in Win 2008 R2


I have a mirrored c: drive on a Win 2008 R2 server and noticed on a recent reboot that the boot sequence is rather messed up.  On rebooting the default partition doesn't exist any longer (probably the old drive I had to swap out).  I've attached the output from the bcdedit /enum command.  

How do I remove the current default entry and make the  {current} entry the default?  I also see there are some duplicates in it that I'd like to clean up.  I do have the c: partition mirrored to another physical drive.

I would try this on my own, but given the consquences of guessing wrong, that's a really bad idea. :)

Excellent.  Thanks, David.  And to delete the first bogus entry, I would use:

bcdedit /delete 38c6dc68-624b-11e4-ae48-f5bc54fb1096}  (in my case?)
