    I don't know why but my computer now has a partition and the C: drive only has 6.83 GB and the D: has 71 GB. I've tried deleting the D: in Disk Management, but it will not allow me. When I right click on the D: drive the Volume Delete is in grey. So I wanted to try and reinstall Windows Vista (Clean Install), but I'm getting an error:

    Error Code: 0x80070070 - The System Partition does not have enough space.

    What can I do?

    On the partition selection screen,there is a link
    that says more options.
    Click it and it will give you options to delete the partitions.
    If the C; partition is a restore partition,you will want to keep it.

    Unfortunately the Delete button is greyed out. Since 95% of the hard drive space is on the D: drive can I move all the system files there somehow and use the D: as my primary drive? If so, how?

    try to go the bios , in the device configuration check if the sata native is disabled. you enable it and c if you will install.

    If you are running a factory built system,the small partition is
    the restore partition and the larger one is the operating system
    partition.
    You would need to select the D: partition and the button should
    be accessable at that point.
