Hi Alex,

I had this issue when trying to install Ubuntu on my brother's new computer last year. Most likely it is due to the way raid is installed and handled on boot on your computer. I've only every used Ubuntu, but I would assume the live CD for Mint works the same as the Ubuntu's live CD's work. If so, select the try Mint option. Once you are booted, open a terminal and type the following:
type: sudo apt-get remove dmraid
then type "y" then enter

Then on the desktop, I assume you have an icon to install Mint, the same as Ubuntu has an option. Click on that icon to install. Then when you come to the partition portion of the install it should work fine. It worked perfectly for me.

I hope this helps you.

partition stage...grr, and I haven't had time to sort it out.
