Comments/Problems:

    I am trying to install sarge on a RAID 1 System. I
had never done it before, but I did search as much
info as I could. I got info where it was said that you
could not install a RAID / or /boot partition, but at
the same time I saw some mails/workarounds written in
Bug report #251905.

    One of the last paragraphs there states:
    "Just tried these 2 patches on a fresh install
with a raid1 set and grub installed really nicely".

    This answer was written on June 21st, so I thought
this could have been fixed for sarge-RC1, and tried
it.

    Everything works fine up to the point when it has
to install the boot loader. I get a warning: Debian
does not allow me to boot on a RAID device, but it
_allows_ me to go on, therefore I say i _want_ to keep
my RAID partitions.

    After some time, system warns: Grub could not be
installed on my system, if I persist on trying, I get
back to the "old style" installer, but even then I
can't install grub.

    I decided to switch to console, trying to make a
"manual" install, but system says that it cannot find
"grub", "grub-install", "update-grub", etc either in /
or /target. If I look for anything related to grub, I
can only see a file: /target/boot/grub/device.map. It
contains only two lines:

    (hd0) /dev/hda
    (hd1) /dev/hdc

    Any change to this file doesn't seem to make any
success: I tried to change /dev/hda for /dev/md1, as I
have / defined there with boot flag enabled, but there
was no success.

    I feel I am very close to the solution, but could
not get it, and I guess many other people could find
this problem while trying to install a RAID system
with the new sarge installer.

    I am willing to try this in the following days if
needed, as it will be much easier and helpful than
installing a "normal" system and "migrating" it to a
RAID system afterwards   :-)

    Apart from this, sarge-installer is awesome:
accurate and easy, great work!

   Hello,

   It seems that this bug is already closed, it was
probably related to a different bug: I downloaded a
new d-i image on 17th sept and I did not find this
problem anymore. This time Grub installs perfectly in
the RAID system.

   Then I have some trouble with fsck, but that's a
different story.

   Thank you for your good job!

     Sergio
