Simply open up Disk Utility, right click on your Mavericks drive, show in Finder. Rename it. Good to go.

These questions have been answered before. Use the search, it works great. Less than a minute I found this to start you off.

Hi, ok so i renamed it! and it works fine!

but now i have a problem. I need to use my system reserved partition to boot to windows using chameleon, so i need to rename it to Windows 7 or something like that, so in the .plist file i put

Rename Partiton
hd(1,1) Windows 7

but that only works when press a key at the boot loader otherwise it says WINDOWS NTFS

how do i fix this? i set the windows drive to default using chameleon wizard because that is my main OS

so i would like it to say Windows 7 or Windows instead of System Reserved or WINDOWS NTFS
