What have I done wrong?
I have two SATA hard drives in a raid format, both drives are new and I've never loaded windoze onto them.
Hard to say what you've done wrong, since we don't know what you DID. Did you do the install, load GRUB, get admin passwords set, etc.? If you went through the whole process, is your system BIOS set to boot from the hard drive(s)? Tried taking one of the drives out of the mix, to see if it'll boot from a single?
