Windows 7 is on my C drive but there are soom boot files on my B drive - I tried to boot computer with just C drive but it wont boot but would with B drive connected. So I then tried copying the boot files accross but C drive still wont boot unless the B drive is connected.

 

Is the best plan to boot from CD - repair windows then fit my new HDD?

Sounds like you've got a bridge issue (using two drives to boot). Copying wont help you. You need to do a full re-install or parallel install of windows on one drive and copy your important files (non-windows files) over to your system.

If I do this I will lose all my programs on the C drive - I dont want a dual boot system?

Yes you will lose all of your programs on the C drive. You'll just have to reinstall those programs
