    So, I installed Windows on my 2nd Mac Pro HDD and noticed today that my OS X partition (formerly disk0s2) became disk1s2:

    MacPro:~ Alex$ diskutil list
       #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
       0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *149.1 Gi   disk0
       1:               Windows_NTFS Windows                 149.0 Gi   disk0s1
       #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
       0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *139.7 Gi   disk1
       1:                        EFI                         200.0 Mi   disk1s1
       2:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh HD            139.4 Gi   disk1s2
    Basically the 1st HDD is disk1 now and the 2nd HDD disk0...
    Why did that happen ? Nothing to worry about but I'd like to have it the other way around as it was before :( Any way to change that ?

    I believe it may be a product of the way Windows works, which is part of what Boot Camp is there to do. Stop being such a perfectionist and just live with it. :p
