Windows 7: How Do I change the location of the C:OS on my Partioned Hard Drive

How Do I change the location of the C:OS on my Partioned Hard Drive

I had a problem recently when I did a backup recovery of my operating system.
I am running Win 7, AcronisTrue Image WD Edition for backup and Partition Wizard 7 for HD partitioning. My reinstalled C:OS was not installed on the first sectors of my HD.
My 1.35 TB HD looks like this:
Partition 1 - 122 GB unallocated
Partition 2 - 40 MB Fat
Partition 3 - C:OS 87 GB
Partition 4 - Unallocated 507 GB
Partitions 5 -12 - Unallocated & Subject Partitions
For Ease I prefer to have my subject files in separate partitions.
When I try to make a new image of the OS I get the message " Can't find sector 0", if I hit 'Ignore" the program continues to make the Backup.
Will this cause a future problem and should try and move the OS to the first sectors of the HD.
Thanks for any advice/suggestions, Sam
