I'm using RAID 10 and for my install RAID is detected, but once I reboot
(after the install) the system cannot boot on the OS
it seems that I had to use mkinitrd but I don't know how to use it.
During installation everything is fine and just before reboot, I got to
type some shell command to "tell" the system that he had to use the raid
driver at reboot (there is also a problem that I use an USB key to
instert the driver and it is viewed as /dev/sda then the system detect
the Raid disk and called it /dev/sdb), maybe I had to do something with
that before rebooting with a fresh install of XenServer
