    check the boot ini file
    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    if this is on the G drive you may be ok and just need to use the
    default above
    swap drives around make sure the master is G it will now be C
    this is for clean boot seq.
    if the boot.ini is on C you may need more help
    look in disk management and see where the boot and system drive is
    g should be the system drive
    just remember any programs that ran from this drive or the other when you change they will not run
    XP drive letter change
