I found the patch for treating mdadm's IMSM as simple device is also feasible for DDF format.


The patch I was using for testing is attached. The installation and booting went successfully.

Dear developers, it would be great to know your opinions about this.

When trying to install grub on disks with DDF firmware RAID managed by mdadm, the installation fails with error message.

> grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/md126

Installing for i386-pc platform.
/usr/sbin/grub2-install: error: disk
`mduuid/616d632f0757e222039a73788ad21157' not found.

Here is mdadm information

> /sbin/mdadm --detail '/dev/md126' --export"
