I want to change the drive letter of the drive on which Windows 7 is installed.
It is currently F:, and I want to change it to K:

If you are not able to change the drive letter using disk management, then follow the link which is mentioned below to change the drive letter.
It is mentioned in Microsoft article: How to restore the system/boot drive letter in Windows

You may not change Windows 7 drive letter without ruining the install. This will only work if the letter has been changed during repair or reimaging from its correct letter.

You should always boot the installer so that Windows 7 will see itself as C no matter how many other OS's are installed.
