Maybe, I always use a legacy custom setup for the partitions with a /boot,
swap, / and a /home, install and set it up as I want it, and then clone and
deploy the image. Has worked so far.

Things are simpler that way IMO, even if I maybe miss some advantages with
LVM-groups and whatnot. 

Anyway, I saw afterwards you were using a md0-device, ie raid. That may
complicate things. 8-}
