Problem solved. mdadm have no problem mixing entire disks and partitions given that the partition type is set to 0xFD. Using parted, this in non-intuitive since you need to create an ext2 partition and then use set 1 raid on, which will change the partition type.

GRUB obviously needs, and uses, drivers in order to access files stored on a RAID. For example if you use a mdadm software RAID, you will see insmod mdraid09 in your grub.cfg.

I have figured out what happened. Either of two things: 1) I messed up the partition table or 2) something else messed up the partition table and after a reboot there was NOTHING to be done. Here's what I should have done when one disk of the raid1 died: check the raid status with cat /proc/mdstat make sure the drive is really dead mdadm examine gives ...

It seems that root cause is /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/mdadm script absence - on Debian-8 it is included in mdadm package, but was lost in the same package for Ubuntu-16.04 ;-( So, after I've created its dirty-hack version and recreated initramfs - my test Ubuntu-16.04 LTS server was able to fully boot using the only second HDD from RAID1 ...

The key to the solution was to switch the controller in the BIOS from RAID mode to AHCI. After that Linux saw the devices (dev/nvme0p0, /dev/nvme1p0). NVMe drives can be driven in many different ways: see 1st figure in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M.2. I still need to try how nvme_load=YES boot option influences the situation, since the involvement of AHCI ...

Make sure your mount point is / on the 1TB and make certain you pick that 1TB drive for your boot loader. I can not tell you technically why this is happening to you, but I have experienced this before, not with Ubuntu though. I just went on to use "F12" to enter my boot options every time I booted and selected WINDOWS BOOT MGR when I wanted Windows and ...

I know this is very late, but I had this problem and maybe someone will need it in the future. If you want to use your server like a desktop and you are having problems installing ubuntu with a "Raid" type error, you need to take out all of the hard-drives except one and try installing. This worked perfectly for me.

It seems after messing with it for a while, that the hardware made doesn't affect things much in terms of partitioning. If you create a new partition in windows at least, unlike the default system partitions, it won't show up doubled in the linux installer. Now, depending on the distribution you use, it seems like need certain packages in order for linux to ...
