Bug#494749: debian-installer: disk-detect phase does not detect sata disks in lvm raid array?

Package: debian-installer
Version: lenny daily build from 11 Aug, 2008
Severity: important

When running the lenny installer it doesn't find the two SATA disks I
have in my system. It comes with the following screen/message:

Detect disks:
No disk drive was detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by
your disk drive, you can select it from the list. 
The option from the driverlist that was selected was: Continue with no 
disk drive.

When going to the partition disks option the installer reverts to the
main menu without a message. (I assume it is because no disks can be
partioned, but it could help to insert an error here).

The system is running etch, and I have installed the two SATA disks in a
raid mirror. 

After I selected the 'Abort installation' I did notice that both my md0
and md1 raid disks were picked up by the kernel, and it tried to unmount
them (or something, couldn't stop the display from disappearing). So it
could be that the disks cannot be found because they are already in use. 

The image I used was an AMD64 image.

Please let me know if you need more information. 

Regards, Geert-Jan.
