Missing hard drive

Hi. Not a massive problem but after installing windows 7 on my primary C: drive at 100gb, my secondary drive/partition S: drive is missing. It was only about 2gb of space but before I installed windows 7 it had data on it. Probably about 1gb worth and now It's missing from my computer and my C drive isn't any larger.
Any thoughts?

Sounds to me you deleted all partitions & format.

Can you post a screen shot Disk management?

Windows 7 ultimate
 
 

I had windows vista and had 3 partitions C: 75GB, D: 380GB and E: 20GB
I formated and installed Windows Ultimate in C drive. After successfull install, I see C and E as C and D but my 380GB hard disk is not listed. When I go to Device manager, I see 380 GB as third volume but no drive letter assigned. Any help ?

Try assigning a letter in Disk Management.
