Since installing Windows 7 on Boot Camp, I cannot change the name of the HD partition. It is named BOOT CAMP in all caps. The usual double click on the name under the Icon is not working. Any Suggestions?

Don't use BC here but can you not just rename the drive while booted into Windows?

As Van says, just change the name of the volume while in Windows. Open "My Computer", highlight the volume, right click, select properties, rename the volume.

Regards.
