Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
A little guidance for a fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate, please.

Hey, newbie here looking for a little guidance in regards to a fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate.

My boss recently gave me a copy of Win. 7 Ultimate 32 bit so I decided to give it a go.
Not sure if this makes a difference, but it is being installed on a Compaq Presario F700 (laptop). The laptop was bought with Vista pre-installed.

Now, before I went ahead and installed 7, my HDD was set up in that Vista itself was on partition D: as a recovery partition, and everything else (My documents, Program Files etc..) was on C:.

When I installed 7, I left both partitions the way they were, formatted them and pointed the 7 installation to (what was) D: (is now C.
The problem is, Program Files and all that is stuck on that partition. I can 'move' My Documents and whatnot from within the properties tab, but not Program Files.

Basically, what I'm looking to do is have it setup the way it was when Vista was installed - C: Program Files, My documents etc... D: Win. 7 (recovery partition?).

Thanks in advance for and help.
