Cannot see partition after fresh install on win7 on new hard drive
I just reinstalled Windows 7 on a new hard drive and during the installation process, I split the disk into two equal partitions of 500gb. In 'My Computer' I can only see one partition which is the C drive but not the other partition. Looking in Disk Management, the other partition seems to be labelled as 'Unallocated'. How can I allocate this into a usable D drive? I would have expected this to happen automatically during the installation process.
Thanks you for your help.

No it doesn't happen auto. In disk management right click on that un-allocated space and select create partition. follow the steps as they come up.
