Windows 7: Dual Boot Boot Menu

I'll try the repair some more!
Then we share that ignorance, because I do not know if MS will allow you to mark a RAID configuration active after it has been created? Just another reason I don't want RAID and its complications on my system when the Windows 7 Image Backup utility is so easy to use.

Please let us know what you learn, and whether you have to reinstall Ultimate after marking the Drives "Active"?
