    Hi all, I will keep it short and two the point. I am running windows via bootcamp. In OSX (Snow Leopard), I have two hard disks that show up on my desktop - "Macintosh HD" and "Untitled." Untitled is the windows partition. Can i rename this "Windows," or will that create problems? thanks,

    -Tom

    I think this has to be done from within windows. Not 100% sure though.

    within windows, go into the explorer, right click the hard drive, and write whatever name you want, then apply and accept, and you're done.
    In my case, I just named it Windows.
