Could you try booting with a GRUB2 CD or USB and issue:
ls -l
It should list the devices, and importantly their sizes. Do the sizes differ from real sizes?

Would this array be configured with 4K sectors?

Starting with Ubuntu 10.04 (grub 2) the OS does not boot on Compaq Proliant ML 350 ProLiant SMART-2/p (Smart 2/DH) Array Controller.

It work wery well with Ubuntu version 9.10, (and older) and does not work with 10.04.

The array name is : /dev/ida/c0d0

It is well created and formated, the disk and files can be seen with gparted Ubunti liveCD utility.

Grub stops with error message "error : out of disk".
ls command shows partitions hd0 etc. but there is no any file which can be seen on those devices, so the boot destination file can't be find and grub does not continue.
