I'm not really sure what is happening but will make some suggestions.
1) Is the swap partition present on the MAXTOR?
2) Did you specify the correct drive to the booter?
3) Is the booter on an HFS partition of the MAXTOR?

I think that the booter is a little "brain dead" and requires all of the
above to work correctly.
