For this laptop, the windows 7 installed was an upgrade so it has a separate recovery disk.

I was thinking of changing the D drive to logical drive too, I can just do it right? (like will it affect the boot system?)

Thanks!
Then I don't see why you don't just Wipe the drive completely and start fresh with the install of Win 7, that is if you even plan on using Windows, and then your Ubuntu install. Making the HDD partitions whatever you like in the process.
