The one chance would be if you can go to the shell VT at the screen
before the partitions are detected and use fdisk and mdadm to create
the md partitions, then jump back and have the detected as you go
into disk druid. (You should be able to create them, but I'm not sure
if disk druid will find them when you get back).
