    I have my Macintosh HD (which I access often) and then the Untitled BootCamp HD (which I never access when I'm using the Mac OS... there's not point).

    Would it be possible to move the Untitled BootCamp HD icon so it's off my desktop? Can I just put it in some other folder or put it in my Macintosh HD folder?

    You should just be able to unmount it. You may have to do it via Disk Utility. Or, drag your HD to the Dock, then Change your Finder Preference, to no display HDs on the desktop.

    You can actually eject it. Just right click and poof it's gone. I'm not sure, but I think it'll show back up with a reboot.

    I hope - but it doesn't really matter. I never go into it from the Mac side of things.

    Just Rebooted, it shows up again. Just wanted to complete the post thread incase anyone searches for it.

    You can boot into windows and rename it from there with a "." in front of the name

    It will be hidden on your OSX desktop
