Windows 2003 server system drive letter changed need to restore

I have an scsi raid arrayr with drives c d e, I had my raid array crash and My system drive c was too corrupt to boot, so i put a ide drive in with winxp to do a chkdsk and repair the c drive.  Now the windows 2003 system drive is G:  I have tried the fdisk/mbr command, i tried changing the drive letters from the windowsxp but it thinks its the c so i can't.  I changed the winxp from c to l from the windows 2003, but now how would i get the system/boot drive back from g: to c: as most of my services and apps are broken.  I also tried the registry edit under local machine, system, dosdrives but it seemed ineffective. I tried repairing windows 2003 from the disc also , which enabled me to login again but its still the g drive.

theres no decent way of doing this within windows, however there is an excellant app used by citrix called DriveRemap.exe

This does all the registry changes etc, very good and works a treat. try using a search engine to find a copy

if it is working fine then don't change it as changing it may cause more problems.
