Not X but also Y is the correct idiom.

On the battlefields is correct over for the battlefields.

Fortune favours the brave is a mantra that works not just on the battlefields but in the boardrooms.

(A) not just on the battlefields but in the boardrooms --> idiom: not just(only) ... but also ...
(B) not just on the battlefields but also the boardrooms --> missing "in" preposition before "the boardrooms"
(C) on not just the battlefields but also the boardrooms --> "work on the boardrooms" doesn't make sense
(D) not just on the battlefields but also in the boardrooms --> correct
(E) not just for the battlefields but also in the boardroom --> "work for the battlefields" doesn't make sense
