This page is mainly to record my experiences with setting up this machine so I might know in the future how I got it working.
Partition labels for swap is not used
For whatever reason, fstab is using /dev/daX for swap partitions instead of the labels (swap0 and swap1) that were assigned during installation, they are gpt labels but do not show up in /dev/gpt. Same story with EFI partition. I chose to disable them all in fstab, otherwise the system won't boot with disks added/removed.
