I can see all my drives on the desktop. I can only see two out of four in System Prefs. I can see them all in Utility. I would like to be able at any time to select one of the missing drives in Sys Prefs as the Startup drive. One of the drives is a 1tb Seagate drive just installed and formatted, and it's never shown in Sys Prefs. The other one is a drive used for quite some time as my store for FCP stuff and disappeared from Sys Prefs a little while ago without any action on my part that I can recall. Can anyone suggest what has happened and how to recitfy this? T.I.A.
I attached a boot HDD (Lion Source) to my Leopard partition of my test MBP and got these results:
(Rasputin HD is a Snow Leopard volume on the test MBP)
Then I attached two data only HDDs and got these results:
Note that neither of them is displayed. To me the evidence is conclusive. Perhaps the prior OSs permitted displaying all HDDs.
