Hello Yuvi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like the partition was deleted. You can pick up at step 2 Method One in the tutorial below if you wanted to create a new partition with the unallocated space.

Is there any chance it is visible in XP Disk Mgmt?

Try first to recover the Partition using free Paragon Rescue CD: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition - Free Download

If partition isn't recoverable, then you'll need to use the file recovery software.
