When you click the eject button in Finder or press CMD+E or right click and select Eject or drag one partition to the Trash, you get this message:
2012_01_06_pA1_EjectAll_dialog.png

Pressing the TAB key one and then the Spacebar lets you select all partitions.

The above screenshot is taken in Mac OS X 10.6.8.

I don't get that dialogue box since I switched from Firewire 400 cable to eSata cable. By the way, my OS is 10.5.8. Why would my dialogue prompt change after only changing cable types to the ext. HDD?

I don't know. Are the icons for the partitions grey or orange?

I get no warning dialogue box at all when right clicking to Eject. The icon disappears.

How can I set the system to show the dialogue box you posted? I used to get it every time when I was connected by Firewire. Is it a System Preference?
