Windows 7 doesn't pick up HDD partition?

Windows 7 build 7000 isn't picking up one of the partitions on my internal Hard drive, one partition I have windows XP on, this its recognizing the other I use for storage (still NTFS) but it isn't listed in "computer".

Any known solutions? Help appreciated.

that's odd because usually it hides the partition where there is an operating system for safety reasons, check on disk management if you can assign a letter to the hidden partition

Yeah, you have to assign a drive letter to it.

Where do I find Disk Management, it doesn't seem to be in Control Panel.
