I was searching forum but I didn't find solution to my problem.

I've installed Ubuntu 13.04 and Win7 on one HDD in UEFI mode. I'm able to boot in both OS'es separately from grub (added some entries). The problem is when I boot into Win7 I'm able to see Linux partition as RAW (in explorer, and only main partition, swap is hidden). When i double-click it then I'm asked to format this partition.

All I want to do is hide/unmount/not mounting it while booting system. Is it possible to do this?

Any help is appreciated.

But this is not a question about Ubuntu. Is about Windows and how you can hide a partition. Try to use the partition management and remove the letter (ONLY the letter,not the entirely parititon). – NikTh May 2 '13 at 12:45
Sorry but I didn't know where to ask it, and the problem is related with linux partiton. I'll try your suggestion and check if it works. – p3le May 2 '13 at 12:47

Just as Hrishi mentioned... Here are a few screenshots.

Rightclick on Computer and Click in Manage:

enter image description here

On the left open Disk Management:

Then Rightclick on the Partition you want to hide and click Change drive letter and Paths...:

And finally mark the drive letter you want to remove and click Remove: You will be prompted with warnings etc. just click on Yes.

enter image description here

The ubuntu Partition will now be hidden.

It really helps! Thank you all guys, now I'm able to use both systems without worries! – p3le May 2 '13 at 13:42

Your Ubuntu partition must have a drive letter assigned to it in Windows 7. Go to Disk Management in Windows 7 and remove that drive letter. And you won't see it any longer.
