Do you have a Windows 7 install DVD or system repair disc? One of them is needed later in the proces.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Make the D partition 'Primary'. You can do that with Disk Management or with the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (last entry on the page).

Burn that to CD and boot with that CD. Highlight the D partition, go to the Partition tab > Modify.

2. Deactivate the C partition and then activate the D partition. Do that with the Partition Wizard CD.

3. Run Startup/repair 3 times to get the bootmgr on D. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

4. Test whether your system boots - if yes, you can delete the old C.

Mark the Windows 7 partition active, so that's the boot partition
How to Set Active/Inactive partition with partition magic? Partition Wizard Video Help.
But first make Windows 7 partition primary
Video help on how to set partition as Primary or Logical.
now press apply so it does what it should do.
System won't boot succesfully afterwards.
Boot from Windows 7 install dvd or system repair disc and do a startup repair 3 times with reboots in between.
Startup Repair
Now boot normally.
Now you can delete or format the partition within disk management.
