Windows 7: Partition missing after Win 7 installation

Partition missing after Win 7 installation

Hi guys! I'm stuck with this situation:

1.I start installing a fresh copy of Win 7.
2.At the point of installation which concerns partitions I delete my 2 old ones (had 2 partitions on 1 HDD) and create 2 new ones.
3.I continue installation on the smaller partition (just for the OS purpose)
4.All done perfectly with installation.
5.When I go to My Computer I am only showing drive C: (the smaller OS partition) and I don't see the second partition at all.

Any ideas?

Hi manastar

Welcome to Seven Forums.
Could you post a snip of your disk management under administrative tools?
In case I'm not clear go to > Control Panel>system and Security>Administrative Tools>Computer Management (Right Click and Run as Admin if you are on a standard user account)>Storage Tab>Disk Management.
Check if your other partition is displayed there

10x a lot Lomai! You asked for a screen but once I got there it was all clear what to do.
It showed up as unallocated space and there was the option to create a new partition on it.
10x a lot again!
