I have had similar failure on all versions of precise on my Asus M4A785 with AMD X4 9850 with one drive on SiI 3132 Serial ATA Raid II Controller Boot from IDE drive and 6 SATA drives in raid5. Every boot failed with initramfs stop into busybox. Installing precise.proposed version of mdadm version 3.2.5-1ubuntu0.1 mentioned above fixed the problem with two successful boots with no problem.
