Urgent help needed with partition,please!

Just built new comp with WinXP OS. During set up I partition my 80g hd. I set C at 40g to NTFS and the other 40 as is. After formating, everything works fine. Its up and running but no 2nd 40g. How do I get back into set up to activate the 2nd 40g.so that it can be read and used.

What have you got if you right click on my computer and select manage then double click on storage?


PS did you activate the partition when you setup.

Thanks guys, will try that now. Building it for a friend. It didn't give me the option to activate the 2nd partition. I am working on both comps and will post back in a few minutes Powerless.
