Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Hello kawayan,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Only way I know to hide a partition/HDD is to remove it's letter. Rt. click computer/manage/disk management.

Check that each partition has a letter. If not, Rt. click on the partition and select 'change drive letter and path'. Select from the available letters and ok.

Hope this helps.
