So I threw in my Hiren's Boot CD and fired it up with Mini Windows XP, looking at the drives, the Windows7_OS is now changed to the driveletter D:\ instead of C:\ and the C:\ drive is now the previously hidden SYSTEM_DRV. 

 

There is nothing wrong in it. Drive letters are assigned by the OS and it is dynamic - not fixed. By default, Windows 7 setup will assign the letter C to whatever partition in which OS is installed. For example, if there are three partitions in a disk and you installed Win7 to the third, you will see the third partition as C when you boot in to the OS. On the other hand MiniXP is a separate OS and it will assign drive letters it's own - usually in the order they are created.
