Hi folks,
Here is my device list:

diskutil list output (the screenshot above is slightly outdated cause I renamed "Windows NTFS" to "WindowsNEW" but this is not the point):

in the /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist I put the following lines:

<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>hd(1,1) hd(1,2) hd(2,3) hd(2,2)</string>

However chameleon is still showing me all the partitions. I've tried to mess up with this parameters by specifying volume names and specifying only one disk/partition. The only partition that I was able to hide was hd(2,3)

Please point me what I am doing wrong...

You can use either:
  • Disk/partition label/name
  • Disk UUID
  • Disk name in for of hd(x,y)
The first option worked best for me. It would be
<key>Hide Partition</key>
<string>"WindowsOLD" "WindowsMBR" "INFO"</string>
Note the ""

It didnt work, only the volume INFO is being hidden, for other partitions the method is not working like the names of the partitions are somewhere hard-coded ((

Rename Windows partitions to some othe labels. It may help.
