It would seem that your 2003 instalation is faulty and it reverts to the default OS which is XP.
I am not familiar with 2003 but if you can do a OS repair on it as you can with XP that should fix your problem.

Hello, male, it does look like the XP installation fell over. It has left an incorrect entry in the boot.ini file - the Default is pointing to the Restart file that is used during installation.
And there are three Oses shown in the selection list!
This should work for you:

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=5
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Server" /fastdetect

If you do not like the default I have chosen for you simply paste this line in instead:
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
