I just got my iMac, coming from Ubuntu. and just finished making it a single partition, Mac OS Extended (Journaled). I forgot to give it a name so now it shows as Untitled. I right clicked on it in Finder/Get Info, and changed the name there, but got error code 8065. I tried doing it via the desktop icon but got the same result. I have no idea what that means. Can anyone tell me what's going on here and what I need to do?

Your post is confusing. I'm not sure what you've done with the way you worded it? In any event Google turns up plenty of hits for error code 8065.

Start here.

I found and followed the video here. Everything went fine, but once it had finished, it showed in Finder (and the desktop icon) as, Untitled. I'm planning on buying another external drive so wanted them named to keep things tidy. I tried using Get Info to rename the drive OneT (as in 1 Tb cause my next one will be a 2 TB), but it kept giving me the error code. However, this morning (Saturday), as I was booting up, I wondered if the reboot would make a difference (Forgive me but I'm only a week old Mac user). As it happens though, that seems to have done the trick. Again using Get Info, I tried the rename and this time it worked fine.
