Windows 7: How to move Win 7 from D: partition to C:?

How to move Win 7 from D: partition to C:?

Noob here. Installed Windows 7 but accidentally did it on the d: drive. Now have dual OS - Vista and Win 7. Want to keep Win 7. Have read many threads on how to get rid of Vista partition by moving boot folder from Vista to win 7 first but after doing so and going to disc mgt it says it's using info from C: when I try to re-format the volume. Essentially here's my issue: I want Win 7 to be on the C: partition, not the D: because D: is listed as a recovery partition with limited space. How can I do that? (or can I?)
Thanks All.

Easiest and fastest way is to re-install win 7 on c:\ (make sure you do a clean install with a format. Make sure you dont need anything from that partition before you do.


Then format D:\ because any recovery that you would have there could at best be vista not win 7.
