Please tell me why Windoze wont load.. Thanks alot
How did you build this system? If you want to have win and linux in the same computer, you better install first win, and then linux. Usually, this yields a system with linux after win, which does not seems to be your case. You have win on the second drive.
Since this is a raid config, I don't know what to think... On regular ide controller, I would install win on the first disk.
Maybe the problem is raid-related, friend. If there are any regular ide's on this pc, try installing on it.
