grub cannot install or boot from mdadm RAID 10 array

root (hd2,1)
 Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x83
grub> root (hd2,2)
root (hd2,2)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> setup (hd2)
setup (hd2)
 Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no

#weird thing about grub is that the drive you enter is considered hd0
For example when booted fully my drive was sdc and I would install grub referencing hd2,2
But when booting from this same drive third/sdc it says it cannot find the disk or partition.
Changing the root to:
root (hd0,2) makes it boot interestingly enough

The Solution

Use a /boot partition and make it RAID 1
