Removing the Win7 entry in EasyBCD does not remove the OS. You'll need to delete or format D in Disk Mgmt in order to correctly remove Win7.

If Disk Mgmt will not cooperate use Partition Wizard to delete D, create a new partition there, or extend one of the other partitions into its space even if they're not adjacent as shown in How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.
