If D drive is NOT your restore partition but just another storage partition all you need do is choose custom install and change the path to D:\xxxxxxxx.

Using custom or advanced install also allows you to select or deselect modules to install. Sometimes you can highlight the path shown and just change the C to a D, leaving the remainder of the path intact. Sometimes you can browse and change to D at that time. If you are asked to create that folder say yes.

I don't use itunes so I can't speak to that program except to say itunes does restrict what you can do with downloads so maybe you need to move the folder you store itunes files to the D drive.

I suggest you go to the itunes site and look at their FAQ list for possible help. Or maybe they have a forum on their site.

If itunes is your only issue then let it download there. Just move other files to the
D drive. Post what you see in My Computer for total and free space for both the C & D drives.
