Debian: creating raid 1 on installation

Hello,

I just got and old computer from a friend with 2x250GB HDD. I would like to use it as little home server and therefore I would like to use it in software raid 1 mode. I never did that before so I googled for a tutorial and found this one:
https://blog.sleeplessbeastie.eu/2013/10/04/how-to-configure-software-raid1-during-installation-process/

I did exactly the same, but I don't get it working. First I only created one partition (in the tutorial they never mention to create 2). I assume that's why I always got the error that I don't have a disk/partition left when clicking "configure software raid 1".

Then I made two partitions per drive and "configure software raid 1" worked. But now it looks like this:

But it should look like this:

Can you help me and tell me what I did wrong?

Thank you :)

  • Go to "configure software RAID" one more time and create the second RAID1 device (from sda2 and sdb2)

  • If you want the same setup as the screenshot, partition #2 of drive sda should be of type "raid", not "swap".
