    So, I installed Windows Vista with Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro. Vista sucks... but I really like Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, which is why I installed it. Anyway, the partition that I installed it on is on my desktop and wont go away. I went to the finder and changed the hard drive visibility on the desktop, which was off because I don't like much of anything on my desktop. So, the partition that Windows is on is stuck on my desktop and won't go away. It's sooo irritating. What can I do to fix this?

    Open Script Editor in your Applications > AppleScript folder. Create a new script and copy this in:
    Code:
    try
    	do shell script "/usr/sbin/diskutil unmount /Volumes/WINDOWS\\ XP"
    end try
    
    Change "Windows\\ XP to whatever your Windows partition is called. Save the script and put it in your login items in System Preferences > Accounts. This will make it run when your computer boots up.

    Same thing happened to me last night. Disabling the showing of CD, DVD, and iPods removed it... which seemed dumb to me.
