Windows 7: Installing Win 7 on raid0 array, boot manager status 0cx0000225.

Windows 7 Ultimate N X64
Installing Win 7 on raid0 array, boot manager status 0cx0000225.

Hi, new to the forum, could do with some advice.

Just got my new computer a couple of days ago and having problems installing Windows 7 Ultimate N X64 on a Raid0 volume.

I've got 2 2TB hdd running in a raid0 volume setup with Intel RST. I made a flash disk for the raid drivers. Then I go ahead and start the install of Windows 7, load the raid drivers, create a 1TB partition to install Windows 7 on and have a 3TB partition for storage and such. Installs windows no problem. When i restart the system windows boot manager appears with "0xc0000225 - The boot selection failed because the device is inaccessible"

If i then restart the computer, i get windows error recovery screen, if i choose Start windows normally, it boots fine. If i choose repair, it just goes back to the 0xc0000225 screen. This happens every time i restart the computer.

I've tried everything i can think of, such as changing the boot order in the bios and such.

Hope someone with a bit more wisdom on computing matters can assist me in resolving this matter.
