Hi; this is the closest bug I found to my problem. I did a clean install of 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot (Kubuntu) on a machine which has a degraded software RAID disk (but not onto that disk), did not install mdadm, and it booted fine. I then merely installed mdadm but did not attempt to activate the drive, and I get the initramfs / busybox screen. Here are screenshots of dmesg, and of grepping for failures: http://imgur.com/a/NEr12

Let me know if there are any experiments I can do.

Thanks.
