Windows XP Repair Problem

I have two hard drives, C: and G:. When I boot from my Windows CD, the repair function is repairing my G: drive, and not the C:. I have a raid controller, but I've just discovered that my floppy drive is blown (haven't used it in years) so at the point where I'm asked to insert a floppy containing the drivers into drive A:, I'm SoL. If I continue without loading in the controller drivers, everything is installed on my G: drive.

When I reboot my comp, if the CD is still in the drive, Windows boots from G:, but if there is no CD in the drive, Windows boots from C:. C: is the newer, faster drive, and the one I want to repair.

I'm totally lost, and hope I've explained my problem well enough that it makes some sense.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.
