When deploying a template, you can only deploy it, to a single datastore.

Once the template has been deployed, you will need to Migrate/Move/Storage vMotion the D: drive and E: drive to the correct datastores.

One question about your datastores, how have you setup the underlying storage? This may "look nice" from a cosmetic point of view, and for management, but may not be setup, for optimium performance.
