Debian: waiting for root filesystem fails (using software raid)

If your system does not boot up und you’re dropped to an initramfs shell after “waiting for root filesystem” fails – check your mdadm config

/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf

Make sure it contains the correct definitions which are available with

mdadm --detail --scan

Adjust your config and run

update-initramfs -u -k all

to make the system bootable again.
