This is what my mac icons look like? How to I change them to the silver icons?
I don't know where to get the orginal icon. But you could do this:
Open this address
Right-click on the image and choose Copy
Right-click on the Macintosh HD icon and select Get Info
Click on the graphic in the top left corner (below the red and yellow buttons)
Click on Edit>Paste in Finder
Done. You can of course use any icon you wish.
I'll leave the post above, in case it is useful for anyone who wants to change an icon.
But the OP, I have a MUCH more simple solution.
Just right-click on the Macintosh HD icon, select Get Info. Then click on the icon in the top left corner and hit the <delete> key on your keyboard. It may ask you for a password.
This restores the icon to its default.
Doesn't the yellow mean it's reading it as an external drive?
Yes. It appears the OP is likely booting from a TB external, or the internal drive already had its original icon replaced somehow.
Anyway, as Chippy explained, drive icons can be copy and pasted through the "Get Info" information box. The original silver drive icon can be copied from an internal drive on the system and pasted to another drive, internal or external.
CandyBar is now free and an app that any icon lover should have installed
Did nobody look closer at the green text on the bottom left of the image. One word that really sticks out is Hackintosh, the issue is not to do with the icons but rather the disks not being recognised as built in. There are quite a few fixes for this I would recommend a look at insanleymac. Another big give away since when was there a mac with an i5 2500k cpu
Didn't even open the image to be honest ;-)
That's right. This machine is a Hackintosh. I also have a 2012 MBP. This was an old windows machine I wasn't using and decided to load ML on there.
Everything works great except for those little annoyances.
Thanks I got it fixed.
