[GUIDE] Debrick a MyBookLive DUO

So it looks like I need to create /dev/md2 and the swap after all. When my device got done changing itself to RAID-1, even though everything appears to be working from a functional perspective, the GUIDE tells me it needs to be there.

I got a little curious about the highlighted errors, so I stuck one of the original drives in the device and the error was still there.

It looks like I have a new MBLD with 2x6TB drives.
