Grub can be installed if you set up /boot as a separate partition (on a
separate RAID1 if you like).
Windows is normally detected quite reliably. Would you be interested in
helping find out why it was not?
If you are, please start another installation. When you get to
partitioning, switch to VT2 and give the command 'os-prober'. What output
does that give? After that you can abandon the installation.
Note that windows is _not_ detected if you chose to have the windows
partition mounted during partitioning, but it does not look like you did.
The script that does the actual detection is
Maybe you can tell what goes wrong from that.
