Default Missing Harddrive - 03-22-2010, 02:17 AM

I just installed snow leopard with an external dvd drive and netbookinstaller 0.8.3 and everything went smoothly and works except there is no icon for the hdd on the desktop. I can see it in the finder but would like to add it to the desktop, is there a way?

Open Preferences in the Finder menu. Under the General tab you should find, "Show these items on the desktop". Select "Hard disks" and all should be good.

Finder->Preferences. Check the things you want to show up on the desktop.

Mini 10v Triple Boot, OS-X 10.6.3, Windows 7 Starter, Ubuntu Netbook Remix

If it's not broke, take it apart and see how it works
