that's where I got the idea from, but after reading it again and again,
I think the problems are still not the same.

In your thread, I read that there was a problem reading the UUID from a
physical device (sdXY), and it was suggested that getting the UUID from
a virtual device (eg. mdX) was going to explicitly be disabled. Looking
into the SVN trunk, this appears to be the case.

Still, the installation procedure somehow wants to gather that info
from the virtual device, but I don't know why it does, or how to fix

Kind regards,
