Hard Drive Not Detected in Dual Boot


Hi,

I set up my machine as a dual boot XP-Ubuntu machine. I have two hard drives. Ubuntu detects both and can use both. Windows only detects one. This might have something to do with the way I set it up. Is there a way to get Windows to detect the other one?

The one that is not detected is NTFS I think. Is there a way to find out?

You can boot into Ubuntu and check it with gparted.
Btw, are you sure it is the right forum?
