the mdadm layout should permit identifying the array without reading past 2.1GB, LVM likewise.

Colin suggests that grub2 may be taking errors from Int13h to mean 'LBA is bust' when in actual fact it works, just can't read the /whole/ disk.

http://paste.ubuntu.com/5950617/ is suggested as being part of a possible fix.
