It might mess up grub. But otherwise it should work.
I kind of did this.
I installed F11 to a raid-1 two sata drives.
I could not get it to boot, it wanted a BIOS ID.
My BIOS (MSI K9A2) lets me boot from raid, but it does not show up in the first
The one with IDE/SATA drives shown.
Anyway I went into the BIOS and deleted the raid array.
When I tried to install F11 the drives were NOT detected by anaconda.
It seems that there are "ghost" dm partitions on them.
Anaconda sees them and dies.
I was able to install F10 and Mint, as well as XPx64, but not F11 or F12-alpha.
Apparently this is a known bug in anaconda.
So you may be able to fix up your drive and boot it, you most likely will not
be able to install to it.
Sorry, I should have made it clear sdc & sdd RAID 1 drives are mounted
on /home, the MBR etc is on sda (/) - but all the extra info was
