    As the title says: How do I hide the Boot Camp partition on the Desktop in 10.8.3?

    I'm well aware that you can hide Hard Disks on the Desktop via Finder>Preferences>General tab>uncheck "Hard disks", but that hides the boot drive Macintosh HD too and I don't want that.

    Is there a Terminal command that can allow me to hide the Boot Camp partition on the Desktop ONLY while still being visible and accessible in the Finder sidebar?

    My thanks and appreciation in advance to anyone who can help.

    Hide the disks, and then write an AppleScript that points to the hard drive, then package it as an app, give it the hard drive icon, and change the name to Macintosh HD.

    That's the way I put the trashcan on my desktop anyway. Haha.

    In Windows, place a period in the first character position of your Win HD name.

    i.e. WinHD ----> .WinHD

    Thank you so much. I tried it out last night and it worked brilliantly. :)
