Re: installation issues - hard drive smaller but no partitions showing
In most motherboards, there is a button to press to select the boot device.
Initially - since your hard disk is blank, the BIOS detects that and boots from USB.
Now that its partitioned (which is why you are missing space), the BIOS tries to boot from the HDD. (I guess the USB has a lower boot priority than the HDD)
