Please run a dmraid installation and, _before_ you get to grub installation 
(e.g. during partitioning), uncomment the line 'set -x' in the file

Then complete the installation and provide the following files:
- hardware-summary
- syslog
- grub-dmraid.log

All these files can be found in /var/log while the installer is running and 
in /var/log/installer/ after rebooting into the installed system. The file 
hardware-summary is created during the last step of the installation, but 
can also be generated using the option "Save debug logs" in the main menu 
of the installer.

Please send the files gzipped!
