    If you're still booting from the copy on the C: drive, you can remove the copy on the D: drive. OTOH, it sounds like you are actually booting from the new copy., which is why you can't format it.

    Control Panel, System, Advanced, and click on the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery section. Click the Edit button and copy/paste the entrie contents of the boot.ini file displayed here.
