View Full Version : SL Desktop not showing Mac HD anymore..

So I just did a Erase and Install and arrived at the desktop to find.....Nothing. No more Mac HD! Is this to be expected? Mac OS X Install DVD shows. But not the HD.

I brought up a Finder Window using the Documents stack and stupidly proceeded to click on Mac HD under DEVICES and drag it to the desktop, thinking it would create a shortcut...but it trashed the fucking thing. No more Mac HD for me.

How do I get this shit back?

Same thing happened to me

Go Finder > Preferences > then check the 'Hard Disks' box under 'show these items on the desktop'

and you can always open a new finder window by clicking on the finder icon in the dock.

Cool, came back to tell ya I found it and voom. I notice in all the printed documentation screenshots they have removed it too. I guess Steve found it too ugly to have icons on the desktop.

Also, the way to restore deleted items under Devices is to hit Shift Cmd C and drag 'er back in .. Phew!
