Question CentOS 6.2 boot problem running software Raid1

Hi!

I followed this tutorial to setup Raid1 on running just installed CentOS 6.2. The system boots nice from RAID arrays using either first or second HDD when both HDDs are connected. But when I remove one of HDD the system hangs during boot showing error multiple times:

mount: you must specify the filesystem type
And after that:

kernel panic - not syncing attempted to kill init
I found an issue in CentOS bug tracker and it looks like mine, but slightly different.

Here is my system info:

Ok, i fixed it only installing 6.1. Did it following How to Setup a Software RAID on CentOS 5.

Then I added to yum.conf line:
Quote:
exclude=dracut*
and did:
Quote:
yum update
CentOS has updated to latest 6.2 kernel and after that I have tested fail of both hard drives. System boots as it should! That's it!
