"Hide Partition" is not working for me
« on: March 30, 2013, 05:30:34 AM »
Hi folks,
Here is my device list:

diskutil list output (the screenshot above is slightly outdated cause I renamed "Windows NTFS" to "WindowsNEW" but this is not the point):

in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist I put the following lines:

Code: [Select]
<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>hd(1,1) hd(1,2) hd(2,3) hd(2,2)</string>

However chameleon is still showing me all the partitions. I've tried to mess up with this parameters by specifying volume names and specifying only one disk/partition. The only partition that I was able to hide was hd(2,3)

Please point me what I am doing wrong...

Hi rage_q3

Doing a quick test here I managed to successfully hide my Ubuntu install the same notation you're attempting to use:
Code: [Select]
<key>Hide Partition</key>

I am aware that by default you cannot hide valid OS X system partitions but I thought you should be able to hide the NTFS partitions. There are many threads about this subject on this forum. Have a look at this for starters: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,1682.0.html
