Looks like you have wiped it during the install. Check disk management and see what it says in there.

in the search, type "diskmgmt.msc" without the quotes and press enter, it should bring it up.

with windows no. Google G-parted. its a free program that does partitions pretty well. See if that can combine them for you.
