When you put the boot loader in md0, you need a stock MBR , and an active partition that is part of md0.I suggest you read the RAID boot instructions in the wiki.

I am trying to install onto an ASUS system with an LSI (fake) raid controller. Unlike debian, ubuntu 14 detected it and installed drivers and utilities. Then it creates a RAID 1 as directed. All is well.
But it fails to install a boot loader, grub or lilo. No error details, just "failed to install". So sad.
I am new to stack overflow. So please correct me if my question seems irrelevant or stupid.
I read here in Booting Process : The job of the primary boot loader is to find and load the secondary boot loader (stage 2). It does this by looking through the partition table for an active partition.
