Prevent a given partition from mounting at boot
Authored by: cypherp on Mar 26, '07 07:31:58AM
you'll give yourself a helluva fright if you do - on my setup 10.4.8 Drive Genius unmounts the disk, sure, but macos immediately tries to remount it, can't read the format and asks if you want to initialise it. every time you start up . Plus diskutility can't mount the partition, also seeing it as unformatted - and the whole point of this exercise is to have the disk easily to hand, just not using resources

I'm on a G4 windtunnel with 3 extra drives, and this little trick saves me about 30dB
