Bug Description

When installing Fuel 5.0.1 on a Dell C8220 using a RAID 1 array (C602 drive controller), the following error is encountered: "Disk sdd contains BIOS RAID metadata, but is not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disk sdd".

CentOS 6.5 installs fine on this hardware, and the RAID array is recognized correctly. This problem is only encountered when installing Fuel.

Yes, Fuel 5.x and previous Fuel versions does not include drivers for software RAID arrays, built-in to chipsets.
Current plans are to include support for software RAID arrays using built-in Linux RAID tools (mdadm).

As i remember, we add support for some soft and hardware raids. Looks like it can be already fixed. Any way this is know issue and can be safely moved to 8.0

Fuel doesn't support raid arrays out of box. So this is a feature request that needs to be implemented with a blueprint. Adding tag 'need-bp' and moving to the 10.0 release.
