Re: RAID1 all bootable

I started this thread not because grub on both disks should be by default but because I found difficulties in recovering. If I performed badly, and there is no problem in installing grub on the working disk, then I see no problem. There are many raids, not limited to raid1. Perhaps it is because of this that there is no default for raid1.

Seems like it should have been.  I would file a bug against the
debian-installer or installation-reports.
