Yeah, what I mean is that, for now, you should use the manual
installation method entirely.  The guided method assumes it has control
over the whole process, so if you do things behind its back, it’s likely
to go awry.

It wouldn’t be That Hard™ to adjust the installer to so that it offers
RAID as an additional option, but right now the focus is on shipping
1.0.1 to address the more pressing issues.
