Default Change Untitled to Windows in Snow Leopard - 03-04-2012, 01:49 PM

Dual boot - Windows 7 / Snow Leopard - is there a way to change the name of the Windows volume (currently 'Untitled') when in Snow Leopard?

With thanks,
Gilly

To have OS X display a name for your windows drives, assign names to them in Windows.

[open "My Computer", right click the (C: ) drive, choose rename.
Mac OS Will then display the drive with whatever name you give it.]


[[In Windows, your boot device is just known as the "C: drive" ordinarily, and Windows doesn't assign a name to it. So when OS X looks at it, it won't call it C:, cause that's not how it operates... so it just shows it as untitled. Same thing applies to any other windows partitions that show up with only letter 'names' in windows]]
