If you Rename the Boot Drive will it screw up the operating system?
A friend recieved his computer with his boot drive having a confusing name (he is just learning how to use a mac) and figured I would check before changing it.

Thanks,
Drew

It will be fine, just reboot and repair the disk permissions after just to be safe.

The only issue I ever had was wit backup.
Backup worked on a "Macintosh HD" and after renaming created a new set fo the new name.
On restore it did a restore to a NEW, HIDDEN volume in /volumes called with the old "Macintosh HD".
Took me a while to find it and manually move the restored files to where they should be.
Advice: Do not rename if you have ran a backup!!!
