It's an acer computer correct? If so suggest you call acer tech support- manufacturers have their own installers/versions of windows and this may be the problem. (acer is whatI got as top answer to google)

either that or maybe install just went wrong- did you try a repair installation? If your motherboard supports intel matrix manager then download and install it as soon as system is up and running-

edit: (thought this may be more useful- I did/have a raid 0 but its been three years ago) ) With my installation I just dont remember if I needed to install drivers at operating system install, read the documentation and put the storage manager on a thumb drive- during installation when you are selecting where to actually install windows there is an option to install sata drivers- they should be in one of the folders with intel matrix manager- read the documentation to find WHERE and HOW.

found this:

Problem: Setup forces computer to reboot, and never finishes installation

What to try:
Sometimes setup fails when recovery partitions are still present. For example, Acer and HP both put a special recovery partition on their systems, that cannot be easily deleted.

To delete the partition using Diskpart:
Open a copy of Diskpart following the instructions given earlier.
Enter list disk
Enter select disk n
Enter list partition
Enter select partition n
Enter delete partition override

Now try reinstalling Windows.
