    Question ubuntu 22.04 installer crashes with nvme's because of mdadm

    Hi all, first post so please be gentle.
    I am installing the server iso for 22.04.3 onto a machine with a Samsung nvme ssd (1TB).
    Now, after going through the installer and "using the whole drive" i get an error that something went wrong...
    i looked into the crash log and it says something along the lines of:
    Code:
    mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically
    ...
    Detected Multipaath support
    DM multipath kernel driver not loaded
    ... 
    unexpected error while running command
    multipath -r
    Installation failed
    Is this a driver issue? if so how do i fix it?
    thanks

    I think the mdadm message is just that it didn't find any arrays, which is normal if you don't have any.

    Not sure what the error might be. One thing that comes to my mind is if using EFI boot and not preparing the disk in advance, not sure if the installer can prepare the EFI partition etc.

    I have always prepared my disks in advance, to have full control how the partitions end up.
    Darko.

    Check your BIOS settings for the drive mode like (RAID vs AHCI).

    Also like darkod mentioned, look at EFI settings and perhaps try
    turning off secure boot.
    Nothing is ever easy, but if it is difficult you must be doing it wrong.
