You're asking the wrong question. The correct question is how to fix
your /fstab so that all partitions mount correctly based on UUID's and
break obsolete dependence on /dev/sd?
Remember that drive ordering can change from day to day, (or depending
on what the boot order of devices was used) what is /dev/sda one day can
be /dev/sdb the next.
If you must use a static dev device to refer to a drive/partition, you
would be best serve to use /dev/disk/by-id, but i can't immagine
everyday use for that.
If you are having trouble with this, the output of the following
commands can help.
ls /dev/disk/by-id -lh
