Reusing a RAID from a BIOS install in an EFI install causes a failure to boot
Open, NormalPublicBUG


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.
