Installing partitions problem in Win7

Hello friends.

Please Help - What am I doing wrong?
I have one hard disk 150GB on my computer.
I want to install Win7 and divide the drive into two partitions.
When I did it using the instructions that I had during setup, Win7 load only with the system drive!
Where did all the other memory gone? Can I return the lost memory without installing again Win7?

Thank for the help!

Welcome to SF, potassium!

First things first.
Memory and what you have on your disk are two different things.

1) If you want to access your Hard drive to Create/Remove/Re-Size Partitions then get yourself Partition Wizard.
It's free! And it works! Here's the link: BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS.

2) If you have a memory issue, then I think that belongs in another post; just my thoughts...
