Finder - > Preferences - > General tab - > Uncheck "Hard Disks"
Does that help?
Ohhhh and maybe look at the sidebar tab aswell

Name your windows partition starting with a dot. Mac HD should have permissions to stop damage etc...

the issue with the drives has now been sorted
i changed some settings in the plist for sidebar to set the drives to nevervisible
i will try rename the bootcamp drive starting with a dot and see what happens

As far as I am aware the dot solution does not work (didn't for me), however the solution found at How-To: Hide a Boot Camp Partition - Mac-Forums.com worked perfectly for me, for the purpose of hiding the BOOTCAMP partition.
