[SOLVED] Problem with install arch on fake-raid.

I read  the wiki <https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … _Fake_RAID>, however it's out of date (still use grub legacy). The problem is I couldn't install grub successfully.

partition:
/dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechah
/dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechahp1  (for windows)
/dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechahp2  (/boot)
/dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechahp3  (/)

$ grub-install /dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechah
Path `/boot/grub` is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible. Aborting.

I have no idea what's the problem, I am root and the permission of /boot/grub is correct, why `/boot/grub` is not readable??? I am pretty sure that grub 2 could boot fake-raid, because I tested in debian 7.0, which used grub 1.99, and I could install grub and boot without problem.


I also tried syslinux, failed as well.

$ syslinux-install_update -i -a -m
Syslinux install successful
FAILED to Set the boot flag on /dev/mapper/sil_aiageicechahp2

Re: [SOLVED] Problem with install arch on fake-raid.

Use these old packages instead of latest grub-bios solved my problem:
grub2-bios-1:1.99-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
grub2-common-1:1.99-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
