[ubuntu-us-mi] ubuntu 12.10 dual boot issue

If you think that is difficult then don't try a dual-boot on a non-EFI
system with Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and Win7 both on software
RAID.  Win7 requires Dynamic Volumes for software RAID and repartitions the
drive as GPT instead of MS-DOS.  I ended up with a MS-DOS partition layout
with Win7 non-RAID and Ubuntu using software RAID.  I'm not sure why that
even worked.
