So you got it upgraded now?
Otherwise another option is to temporarily remove the auto-root marking on
the raid set:
- boot the old system
- run: raidctl -A yes raid0
(this keeps the raid set autoconfigured, but removes the root flag)
- boot install media, upgrade the installation on raid0
- at the end of the install, use "Utilities/run sh" to get a prompt
- run: raidctl -A root raid0
(this turns on auto-root again, so on next reboot from the raid
you should get to the upgraded system with working root)
Not elegant, but should work.
