    im fairly convinced that this release is GM, so i finally took the plunge and installed and all went well.

    The only issue is when I loaded the desktop there was no icon on the desktop for my hard drive. It is seen as a boot volume and all seems fine except my desktop is blank

    Is there a terminal command I can enter to reenable this icon, I created an alias but the arrow is driving me nuts

    use the same method as you did before in the released software

    eg finder preferences should do it:D

    Finder Preferences.

    Cannot believe you're downloading dodgy software and don't even know how to make drive icons show and not show on your desktop...:rolleyes:

    While in Finder, open Preferences under the Finder menu and check the items under "Show these items on the desktop:"
