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.
