comment How to Install Ubuntu 14.04 with RAID 1 using desktop installer?
I think it is well known (and to be expected), that the server installer has RAID support. This question however was specifically about clarifying wether the desktop installer could be used anyhow. But thanks for letting us know anyway!

I did not have GPT/UEFI in mind when doing this. Maybe there are a few things that need to be adjusted, especially considering boot loader installation. Maybe your system is in a state where it will only boot in the BIOS compatibility mode of your UEFI.

@PeterCordes: If ubiquity won't put a filesystem there, it might work to do it manually before launching ubiquity. Otherwise creating one partition for the whole md is also a perfectly fine solution.

@PeterCordes: Copying only the mdadm deb is not enough, it needs to pull some dependencies. I really should have added something about resolv.conf to the original posting. Replacing it (like @Mwithii proposed) might break the automatic configuration by the resolvconf package. Better do the following: cat /etc/resolv.conf >> /mnt/etc/resolv.conf.
