Ok! But how do I identify the hard disk afterwards? The device? The raid I want is a lvm volume, so could I use hd:///dev/mapper/raid-rpm/ or sth? Or is lvm to complicated in that early stage for AY?
There are no lvm tools available at this stage. But you can add them, e.g., via a driver update and even trigger the lvm setup process there, so that you can indeed use hd:///dev/mapper/...
Ehm, no, wait a sec... How can I add a driverupdate when the install repository is on the lvm volume? I would have to mount the lvm first to access the driverupdate file... Remember that I want to use install=hd:///dev/mapper/..., so I must get the lvm tools in before the install source should be mounted.
Any change to activate a driverupdate before mounting the install source? I guess if I have to get all that into the initrd, it becomes complicated (all libraries needed for lvm tools etc., hacking the init script... :-()
