Dear Camaleón and Scott,

Thank you for your great support. It finally works, using UUID instead
of /dev/sda1 made it work. Must figuring out why but I'm very pleased
now. I also noticed that right after saving fstab, Nautilus updates

Here is my fstab

proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# / is now on /dev/sda7
UUID=73b82a95-b080-4088-9c3d-1ff8445b2f68 /               ext4
errors=remount-ro 0       1

# swap is on /dev/sda8
UUID=fc31056f-8f28-44d9-8939-6b25176fd380 none            swap    sw
           0       0

# Hide these two devices in Nautilus: using UUID instead of /dev/sda1
and /dev/sda2
UUID=7A2295032294C613 	/mnt    	auto    	defaults,noauto 0       0
UUID=EEA0-2F9F 		/mnt    	auto    	defaults,noauto 0       0

Best regards,
