Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Installing Ubuntu on a 250GB hard drive that had previously been used as part of a RAID Type 0 array until it's partner failed. The system diagnostic test indicated that this drive is good. I replaced the other 250 GB drive with 1TB drive that I'm going to reinstall Windows Vista Home Premium on. The computer is a 2007 Dell XPS-410.
