About My Mac not showing Startup disk on some Macs

Very odd… on my older iMac, the Startup Disk is shown when I select About My Mac, but for my newer MacAir (2018), it does not show. I asked my friend and he notices the same thing.

Not a problem, but odd nonetheless. Just curious as to why?

Are they running the same operating system version?

Yes. Both are running Catalina.

Just for grins, open Disk Utility on both Macs, and compare the configuration of the drives.

@Bgeeoz Sorry, not following. What specific configuration should I look for?

When you open Disk Utility, select the operating system disk on the left hand sidebar (usually called a Macintosh HD). You will then get a display of the disk attributes,

See if both systems are using the same “Type”.

Okay, now I understand. They both say APFS Volume.

Must have to do with different hardware.
