    Hi,

    Just partitioned my hard disk, installed XP and everything was going smoothly. But when I re-booted into OS X, I noticed the partition that is used for windows is now named "Untitled."

    I cant find a way to rename this to something more relevant, so was wondering if you have any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you formatted the partition NTFS then you can rename the drive in windows my computer > and rename C drive, there probably is a way if FAT32 but someone else will have to give advice on that

    All NTFS BC drives can be renamed only from Windows (Right click the drive in Windows and choose 'Rename'.
    FAT32 can be renamed from both Windows or Mac OS X! (For win, ditto as above, for Mac OS X, select the drive and press enter!)
