If you go to Control Panel>Computer Management>Disk Management, you can change the drive letters according to requirements.

Disconnect or take out the other drive. You should then be able to boot OK. Then make sure that your boot drive is set to master and the other drive to slave and reconnect it.

yes i could if i had acess to the op system which i dont as the assigned letter for c drive has changed to e and is not recognised as a bootable drive

From Disk Management:

Right-click a partition, logical drive, or volume, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.

Do one of the following:

To assign a drive letter, click Add, click the drive letter you want to use and then click OK.

To modify a drive letter, click it, click Change, click the drive letter you want to use and then click OK.

To remove a drive letter, click it and then click Remove.
