I created an Amazon Free tier Usage Account. I launched two amazon ec2 instances using the online tool. After that one instance was created and running while other was pending which quickly shifted to terminated state.

In description it shows
State Transition Reason: Server.InternalError: Internal error on launch

Is there any where I could restart the terminated instance or remove it from table. It looks very annoying

It would be good to see the answer as accepted, which still holds good as of today. – Fr0zenFyr Jun 11 at 9:02

Terminated instances will go away after a few hours. There is nothing you can do to manually remove them.

Not to worry, you won't get billed for it.

@JimThio: Your comment could have gained some attention from OP if it was posted on question. Anyway, I agree that the answer is pretty straight forward and to the point. – Fr0zenFyr Jun 11 at 9:01
