You can change any icon by clicking on "get info" and in "get info" window you click on icon and copy paste it whereever you want :angry:

No. It's probably an NTFS partition, so in other words: you can't modify the partitions contents at all. That includes the partition/disc's icon. OS X can read NTFS but not write to it.

True. I think the only way is to replace the generic drive icon with Candybar or an equivilant program.

If you only have 2 paritions one xp and one osx you could try this. Use candybar and go to system. Set the internal disk to say an xp icon. That will change all your disks to that icon. Now go to volumes. That should only show the osx disk. put the icon you want for osx and apply the changes.

 

That is what I did, but I have 2 disk, 3 partions (1 osx and 2 xp) and that worked for me.
