I installed to sda10/sdb10/md3 immediately prior to opening this bug. I expect
installer to accept in such a case (software RAID on only logical partitions,
and no RAID devices on primary partitions) that I want no touching of any
primary partitions, and no touching of MBR, because that is already taken care
of by me 100% prior to installation. Therefore for such a case, touching of
boot flags should never happen.

If the installer needs more checkboxes in order for it to understand it must
not mess with what it has no business messing with, then please provide them,
and not break what is not broken.

If the installer is incapable of writing Grub to its / target because / is on
logicals combined as software RAID, then it should simply make a statement to
that effect, and not break what was not broken.
