someone was saying if you have it installed on another partition you can play it from there without even installing it on Windows 7.

Ok with this in mind you have 2 options....
1: copy and paste (not cut and past)( the wow directory and all its content to lets say may documents, now un-install wow... place the wow directory back to the location of your choice, make a sortuct for the launcher or wow.exe to the desktop.... in theory it now should run

if that fails you could

2: Go to computer management and make a small partition on your C:\ drive (13 or 14GB maybe more) and make for example H:\ the then follow the steps above or reinstall WoW
this would/should then enable it to play

sorry im not understanding... what is locked?
are you trying to tell us that you cant make a new partition?
take a look at Disk Management - Shrink Partition - Vista Forums
if that is still no help then you could add a 2nd HHD or even an external HDD
