I presume this instance is not yet used since you said it was created accidentally. So what I can suggest you, is just delete the instance and build a new one. Or, you can do the following:

1. STOP the Server
2. Release your current System Disk by going to Action Tab (located in the right side of your main ECS page, click MORE, then select DISK & IMAGE, after that select REPLACE SYSTEM DISK.
3. From here you can select your OS as you desire.

Hope it help!

If you're yet to start a production server, i personally suggest release the accidentally configured instance and go for a fresh instance with Ubuntu
