installing with nodmraid is the current workaround for this issue.
There is a bug where the dmraid stuff just blocks. This bug has not been solved
yet and we are still working to fix it. However there is a work around. If
you use nodmraid, the installer will ignore/skip the dmraid stuff allowing the
install to finish. This is a workaround and does not fix the problem.
There is a long list of bugs that are filed against this problem. This bug is
one of them. We have decided to close all the related nodmraid bugs and leave
just one open that will represent all of the others. So this bug will be duped
for this reason.
