Ubuntu, fakeraid and GRUB problem

The case: Ubuntu 11.04 (Gnome 2 FTW) and newer fail to install on fakeraids. It’s even worse, setup claims to have installed everything correctly yet no system boots upon reset.

Here’s a what fixed it for me:
1) Run LiveCD, choose Try Ubuntu, run installer, don’t reboot after install.
2) CTRL-ALT-T (open terminal)

sudo mount --bind /dev  /target/dev 
sudo mount --bind /proc /target/proc 

3) Chroot into installed Ubuntu

sudo chroot /target
dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc
