Windows 7: Missing MBR and missing OS after sleep problem

Missing MBR and missing OS after sleep problem

My setup had an MBR issue a few days ago after installing Skyrim. I was unable to repair it using the windows 7 instal disc. I tried the automatic fix as well as bootrec.exe. After giving up and reinstalling a fresh windows 7, my rig has not been starting up properly. It insists on waking up from sleepwhen it was shutdown, i.e. Not sleeping. Well after a few days of this with no other problems, bootmgr can't be found again. Now, when I load the repair disc, it can't find my OS to even try a bootrec.exe on. But, when i go to load drivers the explorer window allows me to browse my c:/ drive and the installation is there. Any suggestions? I would prefer to fix rather than reinstall due to a symantec DRM issue. Thoughts?

Windows 7 is on a 60 gb raid 0 setup (I know, i know, i deserve this for running raid 0)

Have you tried resetting the RAID? You should backup your data first using PartedMagic and its drive mounting tools. Let me know if you need help doing so.
