I am trying to install 13.04 Server with Raid1 + full disk encryption. I didnt manage to, so I reduced the to setup only to Raid1. However I still didnt manage to.

I receive to following message: Unable to install busybox-initramfs

enter image description here

Unfortunatly I could have found any soulution in google that would help. What could I have done wrong?

My partitioning looks like this:

Disk1/2 (3Tb ATA WDC...)  
1mb free (dont know why was created, probably due to GPT partition table)  
500mb raid1 /boot  
8gb swap (no raid)  
300gb raid1 /  
2.7tb raid1 /home  

enter image description here

the first message says to check syslog or check vc4 (alt-f4) - is there anything there?! swap should be part of raid also, otherwise the box still dies with a single HDD (if swap was used at all). but that shouldn't be the problem. –  frostschutz Sep 4 '13 at 19:32

I think I found the problem: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/debian-installer/+bug/842838 –  fricigrillbufe Jan 9 at 9:31
