Make sure you allocate the partition a drive letter inside windows - either using your partition software or the built in disk management (Rt Click computer - manage - Disk Management)

I've heard good things about this partition software:

BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS.


Only thing is, before messing with your partitions make sure you have some way to restore you PC if everything gets scrambled. If you have an external USB drive you can use an image backup program. There are many free ones out there:

Free Hard Disk Backup and Restore, Hard Disk Image and Cloning Utilities (thefreecountry.com)
