I was able to come up with a workaround to get it to boot, but I wasn't able to actually fix the issue.

Thanks for the tip on how to look at the initrd file. It looked correct, but it helped me figure out what initramfs is doing.

I recreated the array: $ mdadm --create -n 4 -l 5 -e 1.1 /dev/md1 /dev/sd[abcd]2 and it seemed to work and mdadm --examine looked better. However, I can no longer mount /dev/md1 or /dev/md/1.

I've tried that a couple times, it doesn't help. It still loads /dev/sd[abcd] into /dev/md1 instead of /dev/sd[abcd]2.
