That's how my BIU works. If I create a partition called DATA123 then it's called DATA123 in Windows.

I understand what you mean, Brian, but I want to see volume labels in Windows that differ from the names I gave the partitions in BIU.

For example:
* The following partitions are created in BIU: WIN1, WIN2, WIN3, DATA1, DATA2, DATA3.
* DATA1 belongs to WIN1, DATA2 belongs to WIN2 and DATA3 belongs to WIN3.
* Boot menu entries are created that contain one visible WIN partition and one visible DATA partition.
* Regardless of which boot menu entry is selected to boot, in Windows always the volume labels WIN and DATA shall be shown.
* So the volume labels shall not contain any numbers, because the numbers are only there to identify the partitions in BIU.
