    My Mac Pro ("Cyrus") has two 1 TB hard disks.

    When I reboot, only the first of those disks (also named "Cyrus"), the one with the system and home directories, mounts on the desktop.

    The second disk ("Virtual", need a better name, any ideas?) does not appear in /Volumes and doesn't work until I mount it manually in Disk Utility.

    This behaviour is seen consistently, i.e. after every reboot.

    Any ideas? How can I convince Cyrus to mount both disks?

    Perhaps you had a start object in the system prefs/users. If that has been lost or un-clicked you may be able to re-activate it.

    I think all those objects refer to applications sitting on the first hard disk.
