Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2007 2:56 PM (in response to Mike Yrabedra)Hi,
Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I just installed Techtool Pro and on restart , 6 of these volumes appeared! I am dealing with them on this but it rings a bell and not sure why.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 19, 2007 3:34 PM (in response to Mike Yrabedra)I see the same symptoms on 10.5.1 (not server edition). I noticed it sometime after installing the 10.5.1 update, but not sure whether it appeared on the next startup.
I've done many google searches but the only relevant result points back to this thread.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2007 3:51 PM (in response to Peter Fine1)After two restarts, those vols went away. I had seen this in the past, not sure what OS rev though.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2007 9:44 AM (in response to Mike Yrabedra)If you look in Disk Utility they won't show up and most (if not all) are 128 megs in size. Not sure what that indicates directly though other than they must be in RAM.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 21, 2008 8:48 AM (in response to Mike Yrabedra)I see this too.
The only common, replicable error I can find is that it occurs when I do a restore of the boot drive. Yes, two restarts is all that fixes it, it seems.
I should tell you that if you leave it there for an extended period of time, it has a way of screwing up other boot drives...Xserve, MacBook, iMac, PowerBook, Pismo, WallStreet, PPC6100, Mac OS X (10.4.10), ObjC, C, PHP, JS, AppleScript, Cake; English, Deutsch, français
Currently Being ModeratedMar 22, 2008 8:19 PM (in response to Mike Yrabedra)FWIW, I saw this shortly after installing Leopard and initially thought it was an external drive I set up as backup. It was only later that I realized that I didn't have the external drive plugged in when I saw "Boot OSX" on my desktop.
Tonight, I saw it again, googled, and found this thread. Could this have anything to do with Software Update? Software Update let me know I needed to install some updates. I clicked on details and ended up minimizing the application to install them later. After twiddling around with some other things I noticed the "Boot OSX" on my desktop, again. I went ahead and let Software Update "do it's thing" and after a reboot, like the other posters in this thread, it was gone.
So ... as I asked, earlier, could this have something to do with Software Update?
