You should install "linux-image-server" kernel package as Ivan says, and
remove all desktop kernels. Check with dpkg -l which are presents and
apt-get remove them. You may have to remove restricted modules. The
commands sequence should look like this:

$ apt-get install linux-image-server

Reboot on the server image (be carrefull, Desktop kernel entries are
first in the grub menu)

$ dpkg -l linux-image*

And then, remove non server kernels:
$ apt-get remove --purge linux-image[complete with dpkg -l informations]
restricted-modules[complete with dpkg -l informations]
