Not familiar with RAID, but is it possible that the "active" partition (or MBR on your boot drive) was overwritten and just needs to be restored to boot windows?

to my knowledge, Linux doesn't like SATA all that much yet. I've heard of alot of people having problems booting from sata drives. Aslo heard of people having problems enabling DMA access to drives on VIA chipsets, fwiw.
