sounds like slice 2 was your swap partition.
0 is root
2 is swap
7 is an option drive
8 is the fx volume header
10 is the entire volume
I'm not sure what partition is used for split root and /usr.
Are you sure that your old indy was using XFS for it's filesystems?
It sounds like you have some very empty efs partitions on it.
