dmraid support in anaconda / mkinitrd unfortunately is not in a good shape in F-10 (nor in F-11 alpha). I've been working very hard lately to fix this, and F-11 will be much better!
There are a number of underlying causes to these problems, all of which have been identified and fixed in rawhide I believe.
Unfortunately rawhide is currently not in a good shape to ask you to test it. We hope to organize a dmraid test day, within 2 weeks, where we will ask the community to test dmraid support in rawhide (the upcoming F-11 development version).
In the mean time I'm closing all the open anaconda dmraid bugs, against a single master bug, for easier tracking, as all the open bugs have the same underlying cause (2 bugs in pyblock, which have been fixed).
If you're interested in participating in the test day, please add yourself to the CC of the master bug, I will add a comment there with a pointer to the announcement for the test day as soon as the date has been fixed.
