This is not the first time this happens. I have got a RAID5 array which won't get startet because of "personality 5 not loaded". Here is my mkinitcpio.conf:

HOOKS="base udev autodetect ide sata raid filesystems resume"

This doesn't work. Enforcing pacman -S kernel26beyond while the new kernel is already running doesn't have an effect.

Workaround: Using the -fallback image works.
This task depends upon

Try to move raid before autodetect.

Disabling autodetect works. But this should seriously be fixed.

In the examples, raid is even written after filesystems, which shouldn't work in any case.. Perhaps here is more clarification needed.

not a beyond issue. mkinitcpio issue.
