    I have Windows 7 Pro running on my iMac (Lion) using Bootcamp. In Windows the Bootcamp partition is mapping to C: and the Lion partition is being mapped to the E: drive.

    Is there anyway to stop the mappint of the Lion partition? I don't want the OSX partion to appear in the Windows drive list but I do want USB drives to continue to map. Is this a function of Windows or Bootcamp?

    Open Start Menu,

    Search "Computer Management",

    Double click "Storage",

    Double click "Disk Management",

    Right click on your OS X partition and click "Change Drive Letters and Path...",

    Click Remove to remove the drive letter.

    You can always put it back if you wish.

    Hope this is useful :)
