Partition Identifier

#1
I have managed to do this on my Mac Pro with two Seagate SATA drives, but I have only been partially successful. I created a swap partition called Swap on the second drive but when I do a cold startup it would seem that this volume isnt mounted soon enough for it to be used as the swap partition, resulting in /Volumes containing an alias to "Swap 1" and a Folder containing the swap file on the boot drive.

If I perform a restart, everything works perfectly,except I now have to delete the folder from /Volumes. This is 100 repeatable and I have even tried changing the physical locations of the two drives.

Any ideas?

You could try explicitly defining the swap partition in /etc/fstab so that it's loaded sooner.
