10.5: See 512x512 icons of Mac hardware and more

"These icons are automatically set to your Computer icon"

I upgraded to Leopard this morning and my Computer icon is still the generic hard drive. I want it to be my beautiful 20" iMac. What happened? How can I change it?

Had exactly the same question. As copy/pasting the icons in the "Get Info" window didn't help (maybe I was doing something wrong - ie the Windows way :) I did some search and found a very simple command-line solution. Basically, you have to replace the ".VolumeIcon.icns" file located in the root folder. In my case this did the trick:
cp /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/com.apple.macbook-black.icns /.VolumeIcon.icns
