I installed to sda10/sdb10/md3 immediately prior to opening this bug.

Your logs from Description says that your "/" partition is /dev/md2 (sda9 and
sdb9) If it is not right you attached wrong logs to bug.

yast2-bootloader tries always propose bootable configuration of GRUB. It is
necessary because installation has 2 steps separated by reboot. If you want to
configure own settings of installation GRUB you can change it but it deosn't
mean that your changes are correct and your system will be bootable.

Next reason is that yast2-bootloader also check your other installed systems
and add them to actual new installation. Yes of course it doesn't work on 100%
because not all systems and type of devices are supported.

If you are not satisfied with options of yast2-bootloader you can add your
ideas for increasing usability or adding new featrures here:
https://features.opensuse.org/

Handling MD RAID in yast2-bootloader is supported BUT real configuration is not
saved to /dev/md* but to real devices /dev/sda* and /dev/sdb* also other
important information is that supported is only RAID1.

I am sorry but from logs in Description is clear that the original
configuration of GRUB proposed by yast2-bootloader is correct and bootable.
Your changes leads to unbootable system. I am not responsible for your changes.
It is not my fault but your choice.

yast2-bootloader is only small part of YaST and it is software. It doesn't
support all options of GRUB and using MD RAID also decrease the number of your
options how to configure bootloader.

If you want to configure GRUB yourself without YaST assistance you can open
yast2-bootloader -> Boot Loader Installation -> Boot Loader: "Do not Install
Any Boot Loader".
