Boot into your D drive and mark C drive active in Disk management, shut down.
Unplug D drive and plug its cable into C drive, or change C drive to first HD to boot in BIOS setup, after DVD drive.
Now boot Windows 7 DVD, select Repair console on second screen, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots, as it will attempt to repair before rewriting MBR to C.
Once Windows 7 starts independently on C, you can plug D back in to delete and format in Disk Mgmt or using 3rd party partition manager like Partition Wizard CD.
