When I installed Ubuntu 13.04 (Mainline No-Edits Version) I selected the option which seemed fair which was "Install Ubuntu 13.04... over windows 7, This I assumed meant just the drive which contained Windows 7 but once the installation finished I found there to be a problem with my partition being missing. Is there an easy explanation for this or is it just general user area. I am new to this stuff

What partition did you expect to be created for you? Please edit your question to include more details as I fail to understand the issue you have here. –  gertvdijk Oct 16 '13 at 0:28
Windows often uses the term drive when it really means partition, but could mean another drive. With Linux a drive is the entire hard drive like sda or sdb. And then partitions are part of a drive or sda1, sda2 etc. –  oldfred Oct 16 '13 at 4:04
