Windows 7 Installed to D Drive Letter

I installed Windows 7 from an existing Windows Vista installation (not through a DVD boot).

"You can't change the letter of a system partition.

If I understand you correctly, you installed to a second partition from inside Vista. This means that your drive is D:\ - it's set as D: because Vista has control over the MBR.

Because both partitions use the same MBR (and boot loader) I believe it's impossible to have two drives referring to the same letter."

There is no painless way to move windows from D drive to C drive, actually there is no way to do so as far as I know.
