This is very difficult to do - and it will result in your G: drive booting, but it'll just have the C: drive name put on it (nothing will actually change inside the system). This also may affect the performance of the system.
Could you explain your reasons for wanting this so that we can suggest an appropriate fix? Also, let us know what kind of drives that you have (SATA or IDE) - because Windows treats them a bit differently.
With IDE drives, Windows likes to make the first partition on the Master drive on the Primary channel the boot partition (and drive) (this doesn't necessarily mean it's the C: drive, it could be named the G: drive.) In trying to boot from a mix of SATA and IDE drives, Windows will try to boot from the IDE device before it goes to the SATA (and will install itself this way).
Now, if this is just a single drive system (and you've backed up all your data) the easiest fix would be to repartion the drive into just one partition, then format it and install Windows. That way you'd have a squeaky clean partition of maximum size to start with. And, since you've just reinstalled, you won't lose much in the way of settings, etc.
