I would say it is already mounted, or in Windows terminology "assigned a 
drive letter", since automount is enabled by default. I don't think a 
partition can be assigned to a drive letter and a mount point at the 
same time, thus the access denied. Try unmounting the partition first 
using mountvol /p. Then you *SHOULD* be able to mount it at a mount 
point (NTFS folder) using either Disk Manager or the mountvol command.

Probably a WinPE EFI (extensible firmware interface) partition, which 
mountvol does not support.
