Your question depends on the data you want to save. You can always install on top of your current installation, and your data will be backed up to Windows.old
I am sorry, but do you mean you did it with just copying & pasting ISO file to USB stick?

Whatever partition you install to will be detected as C when you boot to it. If you have any problems, run a Startup Repair, found in the Repair My Computer screen on the installation DVD/USB drive.

What happens to the partition which already is named C? It's changed, or?

It will be changed to D: or something.

Can you post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management Drive map? https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...en-forums.html

You say you want to install to E: drive after moving data to your C: system drive but you never say what OS is on C: or E: now.

Please tell us what OS's you have and where, and what OS's you would like to have and where you want them. Then we can advise you the exact steps.

Hm, okay. Thank you for taking the time to reply..

So,
Current OS is Windows 7 on 'C'
I want to do do new Windows 7 but on E drive (then I'll format the current C since there are few system files which can't be deleted; mainly from when I Upgraded from Vista to 7)

Here is the Disk Management screeshot:

It would be better to install Win7 to C: drive in the preferred lower address. Can you move your data to E: drive instead?

Then either boot the Win7 installer to Custom install, using Drive Tools to format C: then install there,

Or if you can't get a bootable installer, run Setup in current Win7 installation from your flash stick or data partition and direct the install to C: drive.
