Description of Problem:
During install 8.0 Beta 1 (Hampton) and 7.3 beta 2 an error message reports:

An error occurred trying to initialize swap on device /dev/ida/c0d0p3. This
error is serious and the install cannot continue. Press enter to reboot.

This happened whether the partitions were automatically created or manually
created using disk druid.

System: DL760
Mem: 5GB
Boot controller: Integrated Array
Root disk: 18GB RAID0

Partitions created manually using disk druid:

/boot /dev/ida/c0d0p1 500M
/ /dev/ida/c0d0p2 14000M
/swap /dev/ida/c0d0p3 2048M
