Windows 7: RAID array won't boot after downloading Windows updates

This update caused a little fuss a while back not sure if it is the update you're having issues with though since it was a while back
I see you have an asus mother board
After installing Microsoft Update KB3133977 for Windows 7, some users may encounter a "Secure Boot Violation" , which makes the system fail to boot into the operating system.

Firstly, I hope I didn't come off as impatient, as I appreciate anyone who's been contributing to this thread, and I myself don't really have the time or even the inclination to jump into this stuff on a work day.

However, extra thanks to ThrashZone for digging up that article from the ether. There's no way I would have ever found that on my own. Sure enough, there was absolutely nothing wrong with my computer and it took Microsoft to create a problem worse than the potential issues they are hypervigilant about releasing updates for. I went into the BIOS, located the security setting and set it to "Other OS" and she booted up like it never happened. Except Safe Mode moved my desktop icons into disgusting, neat little rows.

And this shows up:

It's like a horror movie. Wish me luck. Anyway, again, thanks for all the help.

You're welcome glad it helped out :)
Yes that one threw a few people for a loop silly bitlocker junkware update

I just leave it to collect digital dust
It is a recommended update so if you exclude those from being mixed in with the Important updates it will show in the Optional section and can be ignored :)

Borked my PC when trying to split up a RAID 1 array (not windows disk)
I have two 1TB disk drives as storage space.
