I have a setup that AIUI is supported, but grub doesn't handle it for some reason.

I have 4 3TB disks in a non-UEFI AMD 64-bit PC.

Each disk has a 10MiB Bios Boot Partition, and the remainder in a 'linux raid' partition.
MDADM then has the 4 linux raid partitions in RAID6.
On top of that I have LVM2.

Grub-install finds the right modules AFAICT - and I've tried hard coding the gpt+mdadm+lvm recognisers in, wit no joy.

At the moment my workaround is to have a manually created USB key with a copy of the current kernel on it.
