    I have two drives: the primary c: is ~5gb and the partitioned d: is ~10gb

    For some reason during the installation process, windows got itself installed on the partitioned d:. Is there anyway i can "move" the windows files into c:?:confused:

    No, you will have to reinstall to the primary drive. Once you install to a drive, Windows sets the registry up based on what drive you have chosen. Also, Windows will not allow you to move system files, it will say "these files are in use...".

    I recommend starting fresh and reinstalling to the drive you want.
