  1. What exactly did you do yesterday?
    Just add a partition to unused portion of existing drive? Did you make it bootable and add an OS? Try to change the location of the c drive or master boot record (it should not let you do this tho)?

    What were your drive letters before and after the change?

    And what exactly happens now when you try to boot? What lights and fans and components turn on? Any beeps? Can you get to the BIOS?
  2. Enter the BIOS, and now (most likely) you will see (in boot device priority or boot options or whatever it is calld in you BIOS) ANOTHER Hard Drive or maybe will be recognized as a partition or volume select the one you always use and that should do... if not then try the other and that will do
