Bug Description

I'm trying to install Kubuntu 14.04 Beta1 on a Z620 with two SSDs in a RAID0 configuration. I've had problems with the partitioner crashing for me, however I managed to solve that by manually cleaning out all Windows partitions on the HDD (that I will use as /home). Now the installer proceeds past the partitioner and successfully copies files. The crash occurs after installing language packages.

I don't know what /dev/sda points at but I tried to install / on the RAID drive, which had a mapper name, and /home/ under /dev/sdc (if I remember it correctly). Could /dev/sda (and /dev/sdb) be the SSD(s) in their unraided form? I'm pretty sure I did NOT select /dev/sda for bootloader.
