Hidden partition visible at start of XP

  1. Hello.

    I've been trying to install 2 independent XP on one disk with two primary partitions. With GParted, I've changed the attributes of the 2nd partition to hidden, just to check whether it really won't be visible to XP.

    When I booted to windows, at beginning, the partition was visible for a couple of minutes as drive Z. I even was able to write to that partition. After a couple of minutes, it was gone.


    Maybe this is a noob question, but can somebody help me?

    Thanx
