I have a RAID 5 array set up in Windows 7 using the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, which is, to the best of my knowledge, known as "FakeRAID". I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS side-by-side with W7, and I'm trying to get it to detect my RAID 5 array.

When I run the command dmraid -ay as root, I get the following error:

ERROR: BBM entries detected!
ERROR: RAID set "isw_eacjaeeegj" can't be activated

Anyone know what's wrong here? I have no idea what BBM entries are, and searching for it doesn't really get me anywhere (lots of results for BlackBerry Messenger).

Edit: running dmraid -s gives me the following:

*** Group superset isw_eacjaeeegj
--> Subset
name   : isw_eacjaeeegj_Storage
size   : 8790817536
stride : 128
type   : raid5_la
status : ok
subsets: 0
devs   : 4
spares : 0
