    I think I discovered kind of a bug. I was messing around with my desktop drive icons, and noticed you can't give your 'Macintosh HD' partition a colored label, when I right clicked my bootcamp partition, the colored label options were available, so I gave it a color. But when I remove it, whenever the partition get's unmounted (at shutdown or manually trough disk utility), osx throws a kernel panic. So now I have a permanent label attached to my bootcamp drive :( . Is this a known issue? I couldn't really find anything trough google.

    Can't say for sure. I am able to assign a label to my hard drive. I have had issues in the past where I couldn't assign labels to any Apple apps b/c I didn't have the permissions for them (File > Get Info > Sharing & Permissions). Perhaps you are experiencing the same dilemma.

    Other than that, I can't really say.

    I think this, and also changing the icon of a drive, is affected by whether you do it whilst logged in on an Administrator account.
