upgrade f9->f10 with Promise pdc2027x hang forever

i try to upgrade from f9->f10 the graphical installer simple hang (which
is imho a bug). when i start it in text mode i've got an error that it
can't find /dev/mapper/pdc_fbdiccjg and neither retry nor cancel help.
so currently on that machine it's not possible to upgrade.
while in the console the error:
ERROR: Activating raid pdc_fbdiccjg failed:
       table: 0 0 linear /dev/mapper/pdc_fbdiccjg
       exception: size must be positive
CRITICAL: parted exception: Error:
       Could not start device /dev/mapper/pdc_fbdiccjg no such file or
the machine is an asus p4b533-e motherboard with promise pdc20276 fake raid
controller which is disabled in the bios and there is no disk on it, but the
kernel still find it. it has 2 pata disk with 2 partition which yield:
- md0 /boot
- md1 lvm vg (inside lv swap and /)
but as anaconda can't find the installed system i'm not able to upgrade.

with preupgrade failed beacuse can't find:
