You also have over 300 gigs devoted to C on a drive with multiple partitions. That's much more than most people need, but maybe it's intentional for some reason?

Make sure the Win7 HD remains set first to boot in BIOS setup if you move it.

You should remove the drive letter on System Reserved in Disk Mgmt so nothing will write to the partition holding the boot-critical files.
