Two operating systems

On my computer i accidently installed windows 2000 twice. One of them doesnt work, however, so everytime i boot up i have to choose wich one to run. I was just wondering how to get rid of the other one that doesnt work. This isnt really a problem that effects my computer negatively, but it is kind of annoying. Any ideas? Thanks

you could also set your "default startup OS" in computer
in system properties--->startup and recovery--->OS
if i understand correctly you should have two Windows 2000 options there.
choose the right one
(ive never had any problems like that so im not sure if it works or if i eaven understood the problem correctly)
