If you are using flash stick installer, I would enable F12 Boot Menu in BIOS, then set the HDD first to boot, trigger the flash stick to boot by tapping the F12 key at startup. This may avoid the flash stick reloading during the required reboots during install. But if it happens, just unplug the stick so it can take up with the install where it left off - stick isn't needed anyway since files are already copied off it.

The installation run normally from the usb,but when I get to "where do you want to install windows" it gave me this error... What should I type in the CMD to get the installation proceed normally?

Drive letters like C and D can differ! in winpe (boot from dvd). C can be called D and vice versa. If you have another win vista, win7 or winxp installed.... drive letters can be different.

In common: if you start winxp, win vista, win7, win8 .... the windows partition is called C. In your case win7 has been installed on the 228GB partition. What's the problem?

They are 2 physical drives, or just 2 partitions on 1 physical drive?

If these are on the same HD then confirm there are no files on D, in Disk Mgmt delete D. Then shrink C by as much as you want, create a new D in the Unallocated Space.
Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Create New
