If the problem is you can't see the NTFS partition, it is most likely, it has no drive letter. click computer just to highlight it, right click it and select manage, in the left column select disk management. See if you see that drive in the lower portion, if you do, Right click that partition, select 'change drive letter or part, click add on the next screen, and give it any drive letter you want from the drop down box. Click OK and exit. You should be able to see your partition in explorer now and use it.

If, when you go to disk management it shows as raw, right click it, select new simple partition and follow the guide.
