Install worked fine but arter reboot the machine did not come up.
First it found the hardware OK, activated md0 with 2 out of 2 drives.
Then a line like this (maybe harmless):
Failure: old RAID initialisation script found, getting out of its way...
Then device-mapper was initialized and tol that it has 1 logical volume
stdin: error 0
Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount ...
Then an error from modprobe:
Usage: modprobe [-v] ...
mount: Cannot read /etc/fstab: No such file or directory
Begin: Running /scripts/local-bottom ...
Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ...
mount: Mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: Mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: Mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init
and then I get busybox shell from initramfs.
