I installed Lion again, using this guide: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=260594 I upgraded to 10.7.2 and everything is great.
Yet I have a small, but annoying problem, a Finder window, which is actually the root of the Lion install partition I created opens every time I login to Lion (which is installed on a completely different hard drive).

I tried many things like deleting com.apple.finder..., deleting the .ds file from the desktop and unchecking it from login items in system preferences, non of which worked.

Anyone has and idea how can I make this Finder window stop appearing at login? I always uncheck the resume option when I shut down/restart.

Thanks.

I found this:
open Terminal and run this command:
sudo bless -folder /Volumes/NAME
("NAME" is the auto opening partition's name)

Thanks nyolc8, worked great :wub:

I spent so much time trying to find a way from preventing Finder windows pop up at login, my mistake was that I didn't focus on how to prevent partitions opening up.

I restarted the computer more than 15 times in the last 24 hours only to find a solution.
