Can't find the instance I just installed.

Hi,

I just installed the Developer edition of SQL Server 2008, and I can't find the default instance (MSSQLSERVER). SQL Management Studio can't see it either, yet it can see the SQLExpress instance.

I am running this on the local machine (Windows 7 Ultimate).
