Just right-click the partition and choose Mark partition as active.
Will that allow me to boot from the win 7 hd? I'm concerned that if D dies I will not be able to boot up.
If that happens you can always run a startup repair to fix the master boot record.

Startup Repair

You would need to run it three times.
I've noticed that if I unplug the power from D to stop it from making noise, I can't boot the pc. I did use a utility to save a copy of the MBR from the win 7 hd but your method sounds more thorough.
