I think I found the problem with my install (mentioned in a different thread) and I need someone with a working version of SL. When I look at my wife's MacBook (still running 10.5.8), her Macintosh HD has a Users folder in it (no surprise there). When I look at my MBP in Target Disk Mode, I see the Users folder as well, but there's also a home folder that doesn't exist on my wife's computer. If I look at the new home folder under Get Info, its path is: /Volumes/Macintosh HD 1 If I look the the users folder, I see... /Volumes/Macintosh HD 1 They both share the same path, according to the Finder, but home is empty, whereas users has what it has had all along. So.... and I ask this in bold, can anyone with a working copy of SL check in their Macintosh HD folder (from the Finder) and tell me if they have a home folder, a users folder, and what's in them? You'd be doing me a great service!!
