I just ran diskmgmt.msc from the Windows Start search box, and added drive letter S to the System Reserved partition, that little 100MB space between the 13GB recovery partition and the C: drive. hope that doesn't screw anything up too seriously. now hopefully I can make a backup copy of it using dd. but maybe not; I don't really know why its contents weren't readable before. all I know is that I got an EIO error when trying to dd it as root from coLinux.
