Since it appears to be a problem/issue with mdadm, my setup is:

1 x SSD (i intend to test f16 in sda5)
2 x HD 1TB WDBLACK with mdadm raid1 and raid0 partitions
2 X HD 2TB WDGREEN with mdadm raid1 partitions.

The SSD is MBR partitioned, the other disks are GPT partitioned.

I have the same problem with my laptop Dell L502X.

Core i7 2630MQ
Nvidia GT540M (optimus)
