Windows 7: Formatted HDD...Do I still need it formatted?

OK; good job.

That looks as expected. You can delete D with the mouse and menus. Highlight it and right click and choose "delete volume".

You should then see some empty "unoccupied space" show up to the right of C.

Then highlight the C partition, right click, and look for a choice called "expand volume" or "extend volume" or similar.

That should expand C to take up all of that newly created "unoccupied space". No more D.
