    i have been running the GM version for 10 days now. also been trying to figure out how to stop the Lion finder from accessing my start up drive, which is Snow Leopard. it pulls up my applications and it's a little annoying. is there a way to stop it from doing that?

    Try entering the following in AppleScript. If you have problems finding AppleScript, type it in Spotlight and it'll usually come up as a top result.

    Code:
    tell application "Finder" 
    if (exists the disk "Name of your drive") then 
    eject "Name of your drive" 
    end if 
    end tell 
    Try that out, substituting the name of your drive in between the quotes. If you're able to run the script once and it successfully unmounts the volume, then you can save the script as an app and add it to your startup items so it'll run automatically at boot.

    is ejecting the main drive eject the rest of the partitions?

    Update: try'd the script and it didn't work...
