Its been a few years since I had to install Linux on a box with hardware
raid, but did you check that it had picked up the RAID as an array
rather than as individual drives?

I may be completely out of the ballpark here, but its ringing alarm
bells in the back of my head.

If it is this however, it would indicate that you'd need to find a
third-party driver for the RAID to shove in and load during installation
(or find an alternative distro that supports the hardware)
