Ability to hide non-bootable NTFS partitions
« on: August 16, 2009, 11:51:40 PM »
It's annoying seeing all the non-bootable Windows partitions.  The Mac ones are hidden, so please remove the NTFS ones.

Ok, if you tell me how to decide if an NTFS partition is bootable or not, we will gladly add this option :)
Doing this on HFS/FAT partition is easy since we have filesystem level access for those volumes and we can test existence of specific system files.

Exactly.

Since it can't automagically be figured out, use the show/no show partition option being requested.
Let the user figure it out and decide.
