Hi guys,

I was curious if support for "fakeraid" through dmraid is anywhere on the radar for support in ubiquity, possibly in the advanced partitioner rewrite?  

As I'm sure you know, numerous chipsets currently support RAID on the motherboard but only with the support of drivers ("fakeraid" as it is often referred to).  While linux supports software RAID without needing specific chipset support, many users (myself included) run Windows on fakeraid setups and would love to be able to have a dual-boot setup supported by the installer.  

There are some very manual ways documented for installing to a fakeraid setup using dmraid (see  It would be awesome to see dmraid supported in the installer.  I think this would help users with Windows RAID setups use Ubuntu on the same machine.

Thanks in advance and keep up the excellent work!
