How to move an OS install from one primary partition to another?

A fellow student has Debian and Windows 7 on his laptop. I installed
Windows first so that the Debian installer could configure grub
properly, but after installing and setting up the system (which
required a trip to the faculty technical support to set up printing
and MatLab in Windows, not something that I want to repeat in the near
future) I discovered that I had accidentally installed Windows to the
wrong partition. Can I use the Debian disk to move Windows to a new
partition? Are there any other tools that I could use? I do not care
about what happens to the MBR as once Debian is installed it should
configure grub properly in any case.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
