One partition has been deleted after format, how to get it back?

I'm new here and even I'm beginner with windows so you might find my questions silly somewhat.

I've bought a second-hand laptop so I decided to format it as it was not in English
It has to partitions; C: (67 GB) & D: (43 GB)
During Windows 7 setup, I formatted C: and D: (to make sure they are clear)

After the setup finished, I opened My computer and found only C: with same space of 67 GB, but I didn't find D:

Now I'm confused as I didn't delete D:, I only formatted it!

Why it disappear and how to get it back?

If you please can help it would be appreciated

Thank you

It is probably unallocted space or needs a letter, and that`s why it doesn`t show up in computer, you have to go into disk management to check.

start>right click computer>manage>wait a few seconds>click disk management. it`s on the left hand side.

Once you`re there, you have to right click on the unallocated space and choose format.

Disk management will show you what`s up with it either way.
