Description Steven Haigh 2011-02-22 20:31:23 EST
Description of problem:
When installing on an i7 based system with Intel RAID0 configured in the BIOS, the installer comes up with a dialog:

"Disks sda, sdb contain BIOS RAID metadata but are not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disks sda, sdb    [ OK ]"

This setup is recognised perfectly by Fedora 14.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 15 Alpha RC1 DVD

How reproducible:
Every time.

Additional info:
Under F14, here is the output of /proc/mdstat:
