Bug#426284: debian-installer: partitioner doesn't seem to create RAID devices

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal


using the official i386 installer CD #1 in expert mode, I am unable to
create RAID devices using the menues. When I'm in the partitioner, I
create identical "physical RAID volume" layouts for my (two SATA) disks,
recognized as sd2 and sd3, then go to "Configure Software RAID", then
say "create MD device", enter appropriate parameters, then say "finish",
and then nothing happened. No RAID device is shown in the partition
list, and I cannot exit the partitioner because I "have no root device".

Btw, the disks should be moved to a different machine thereafter, which
would probably recognize them as sd0 and sd1... The numbering as sd2 and
sd3 comes from an (unused) on-board SCSI chip while these drives hang
off a PCI card.
