I'm installing Ubuntu 13.04 Server. When I get to the partition manager, I select Manual. When I click on one of my disks that I want to use as a RAID partition, the option doesn't exist.

Can you not create a RAID in the Ubuntu installation any more, or am I missing something?

Just overlooking something?

These are screenshots during the installation of the ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso in a virtual machine to test:

Note that, as guntbert says a comment, these options only exist when the disks have a Partition table, which new disks don't have. Therefore, for completely new disks, the first step must be: <enter> on each disk, confirm "create a PT".

@makoReactor Then please elaborate more on your installation CD. What exact ISO are you using? Anything custom/beta perhaps? What option did you choose in the initial boot screen? Etc. etc. –  gertvdijk May 6 '13 at 16:35
