Re: why hidden partition?
"my computer" sounds like a Windows thing. Don't trust Windows to understand anything about your Linux. Do your install and trust what Linux tells you./IMHO

I believe not being able to see the partition from windows has something to do with how windows treats "active" boot partitions, and partitions that are not "active" (but are still still up so they can be boot partitions). You will need to get someone more familiar with Windows (as I am not a Windows user) to explain Windows behaviour to you.

i'll explain your lil problem here
Windows is GHSDGT^F%^&$E%^WFHV$#F%gc56sxe8½sd67856&^$&^TVRGS$ csyfhyce5 <BLWEGR
And also that's why you never eat cheese...ah as i was saying, windows doesn't like linux partitions so it wont show them, you can still install to them.
