When I boot into 12.3 on the same box, I have 3 raid 1 drives set up:
/dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 form /dev/md0 - this is the raid partition that
I did the installation on.

running 12.3
/dev/sda4 and /dev/sdb4 form /dev/md1 - this is my home partition.

That discrepancy has been reported in other posts as the problem.

One suggestion I read recently is having a proper /etc/mdadm.conf. If
you have that file, check the contents, the uuid you see might come from
there. I can not locate now that post, but it said how to automatically
create the proper file.

I went into initrd and modified the mdadm.conf file there, and put the
initrd back together, but that didn't seem to do the trick.

Then I tried to reinstall using a different medium, because I found that
the dvd I had been using as my install disk did not check out as a good
disk. Funny thing is, I had run the yast checksum on it before I ran the
first attempt at an installation, and it did check out. In the 2nd case,
after attempting to install using that dvd, it came up with a bad checksum.

So I created a 13.1 install stick instead of the dvd, and after
installing 13.1 from that, it ran perfectly, and I didn't have to mess
with any of the raid numbers or anything.
