The problem is that even though the installer appears to support RAID5, it doesn't really support it. The files are installed on a standard non-RAID partition. So it will boot. But if that partition goes away, like when you removed a drive, it will no longer boot.
You are correct, i try other guides with no succes, and tehn i follow your instructions

Well like i mention, i am comletely new to all this and doing my best, I believe i am running all the commands as a root since I am doing the following: "sudo cat/ proc/mdstat", with the sudo command on the fornt. At this point i do not recall the erros, but i am happy to write them back if i get them again
