Trouble making ARCA 1210 Raid Card Bootable with existing sata IDE HD

Hello sorry if the tittle sounds confusing ,
What i am trying to do exactly is take my HD with my win 7 os on it and plug it in to my raid card. I currently have 2 HD's on my raid card set to Raid 0 .I have another HD plugged into my MB sataport in IDE mode, this drive has my win 7 OS on it. I want to take this drive and use it with my raid card. When i plug it in to my Raid card I can set up the Raid set and Volume set via the Raid bios. I also make this raid set boot-able via MB bios. When i try to boot up windows i get the black screen asking to find a proper boot device. Im not sure what i am doing wrong. Im using a M4A88T-V EVO ASUS MB. Am I missing a step? Im kinda a noobie with raid ect. I've self taught my self everything pc related with lots of help from forums just like this one. This is my third pc build and everything has gone smooth except this. Any and all help is most appreciated .

I can still not get windows to boot when i plug my HDD into the raid card. Ive read the manual. One thing i may be having trouble with is in the MB bios ,i have no otion to make the raid card bootable.....but the drive does show up in the boot priorty options
