RAID: Primary hard drive not found


I have installed RAID 1 with mdadm and it seems to work looking att /proc/mdstat

I wanted to test the system, so I removed the power cable for one of the disks. When I startup I get this message:

Primary hard drive 0 not found

And cannot start. I'm not sure if there is something in BIOS or in the RAID config? Any ideas?

Is it a Linux message, or does it show before the Linux boot loader?

Before the boot loader, so it must be BIOS. Not sure how to fix it
