If your server is anything like mine, your RAID card should abstract
the RAID array, and present it as a single disk. I have this on a Dell
server with 3 discs in RAID5.

Yes, that's right. But I can only see this when I go to RAID controller utility(there is PERC 6i installed) pressing CTRL+S on initial boot of the server.

Did you by any chance install GRUB into the partition header instead
of the MBR? That would explain not being able to boot into Debian.

Yes, I did installed GRUB during the installation process; installer never asked me where I want to install it so I just assume it installed it into the partition.
How can I change the location of GRUB now?

Thanks a lot,
