I just did the following:

- Boot with two disks.
- Enter custom partitioning.
- Clear both disks completely.
- Create a RAID partition of fixed size 4000M on vda.
- Create a RAID partition of fixed size 4000M on vdb.
- Create a RAID1 array using the two aforementioned partitions
  with an ext4 fs mounted as the root fs.

It worked as expected.

Please attach the logs from your failed attempt:

Just went back through and found that my spare partition was not set as fixed.

Once I changed it to fixed then the raid device got created. Sorry for the noise.

Closing bug.
