I have 4 disks previous setup with a Linux soft-raid. Not sure what kind of raid.
I would like to reuse these disks in a new Linux soft-raid 5.

During installation the partitioning program stops with the following information:
Error: ddf1: Cannot find physical drive description on /dev/sdx

I do not have access to the original setup computer.

I have deleted all partitions and --zero-superblocks but there are still some information left on the disks.

How do i get rid of these leftover setup informations?

Any information is wellcome
