    Hey folks.

    So, for various reasons, I've got three windows partitions on my Mac Pro. 1 x XP, 1 x Vista and 1 x 7.

    The annoying thing is, when I hold 'alt' to get into one of them, they all show up as 'Windows' (ie, OSX, Windows, Windows, Windows as my choice).

    A smarter man would remember, or write down what's what - but I'm wondering (as I'm not smarter) if there's a way to rename how they appear in this startup point. I've renamed the drives on the desktop so I know what's what - but it'd be nice to be able to change the startup option too.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Look into rEFIt http://refit.sf.net it is a replacement boot loader that allows for more customization than the stock Apple one.

    Thanks very much! Looks like it'll do the trick, just need to work out how to change all the icons etc so it does what i need to do.

    Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
