Dissapearing Windows 7 Hard Drive

I recently installed windows 7 ultimate edition (x64) the first boot was fine with no problems. After i rebooted thought i tried to get into my secondary hardrive to find it was missing. The confusing part to me is that that hardrive was partitioned into 2 parts and only 1 of the 2 partitions is missing. I have tried rebooting and have checked the cables to the harddrive and still no luck. anyone who can shed light on this would be greatly appreciated

In device manager under the properties of my 2nd hard drive and the volume tab, i can see the 2 partitions but only one of them has an assigned drive letter to it and i canot edit the other one.
