Hello guys,
I've been trying to make my windows partitions to not mount when starting up.
I tried using sudo vifs on /etc/ but after saving and trying both with UUID and LABEL I cannot make it to work.

This is my current fstab file:

415298


Then after updating the file I run: sudo automount -vc but I've had no success as the volumes are still mounting...
I've read maybe disabling SIP but I think /etc/ isn't protected anyways...
Does anyone have any suggestion as to why it isn't working?
Cheers

What method did you use to get your UUIDs? What else have you tried, if anything, that did not work for you?
Normally, to prevent a partition from mounting you need the volume ID, not the disk UUID.


EDIT: Try this and see if it works - use terminal for the following:
diskutil list info name

look for Volume Name, Type (Bundle), Volume UUID - use these values with which fill in the ( ) in the following commands - add to /etc/fstab with:

UUID=(Volume UUID) none (Type (Bundle)) rw,noauto
Label=(Volume Name)\(spacebar) none (Type (Bundle)) rw,noauto

Hello,
I did it with diskutil info /Volumes/volname, where volname is the label of the volume.
The UUID is supposed to be the Volume UUID and not the Disk / Partition UUID right?
I think I did it like this the last time...
I don't know what else to try really.

Cheers.

Hello, I tried your approach with both UUID and LABEL and it's still mounting the volumes:
415555



Do you think disabling SIP might do the trick?
Cheers

EDIT:
I think I already have SIP disabled...
415561


CsrActiveConfig 0x67 means disabled SIP right?
If that's the case then I'm outta options...
