  • Upgraded to SL and no drives showng on deskop

    Installed 10.6.3 onto a new drive with installer disk. Then downloaded and ran the latest combo dmg. When I start up my MacPro no drives appear on the desktop, although, I see them with the System Profiler. I ran Disk Warrior, but still no drives. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    John,

    Hope this will fix your problem. Go to the Finder then under the Finder tab go to Preferences. There you can select what you want to show on the desktop.

    Does that put them back on the desktop?

    Not sure why the default is to show a blank desktop, but I’ve had to check those on all 4 of my machines after upgrading.

    Jay, you nailed it. That fixed the problem. In all my years working on Macs, I’ve never seen this happen. Many thanks.
