if you have a win 7 disk you can install on your c: drive then format D:

HOWEVER i would recommend backing up everything you need 1st

If you are going to delete the Win 7 installation on D after you have upgraded to Win 7 on the C drive then why don't you just do it before the upgrade? Format D, upgrade from Vista to Win 7 on C, re-activate and Bob's your uncle. If you have activation problems then you can do it over the phone, it won't be a problem as your hardware is unchanged.
