Reusing a RAID from a BIOS install in an EFI install causes a failure to boot
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


Trying to reuse a RAID that was built under a BIOS install, fails to allow EFI to boot (because the EFI partition never gets built). A similar situation would probably occur in reverse.

The simplest solution here is probably just to disallow reusing existing RAID.

We have removed the option to reuse a raid partition, instead it will remove the old raid and check for configs and keys on the drives you selected for a raid1 installation.
