Windows can't read Linux filesystems. If you have one whole drive
partitioned for each, then it is normal for the Linux one to be
invisible to Windows, except in Disk Manager:

(Start | Run | diskmgmt.msc)

In Linux, you should be able to see and indeed mount the Windows
drive. What does Gparted show?

Terminal -> sudo apt-get install gparted -y ; sudo gparted
