    Remove shared NTFS File partition from Triple Boot rEFit

    I am triple booting a new i7 MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard, Windows 7, and Kubuntu 10.04 with a shared NTFS file storage partition with Read/Write access by all three OSes. After much trial and tribulation, I got everything to work right. Only annoyance is that the shared NTFS file storage partition shows up in rEFIt menu as a 4th bootable partition. Any way to remove this? Maybe modify the MBR to show that this partition is not bootable? I tried to remove boot flag on this partition using Gparted, but it was already removed. How can I make rEFIt ignore this partition?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    So far rEFIt does not allow to custom hide partitions.
    NTFS are always seen by rEFIt, and shown in the menu whether they are bootable or not.

    I guess your option is wait for an update, or choose a different format for the shared partition.
