    What does the array show up as in the Intel RAID Rom (Control + I at the IRQ Screen during bootup)? One or both disks failed, or neither?

    If one or both then it's very likely that you may be unable to fix this, do you have a backup of the array from any point in time?

    What exactly was the windows update called or named, what driver did it sound like, do you remember any of that? Windows update shouldn't be offering you such updates anyway, so that's very odd.

    Just to be sure, this is how you tried to rebuild the BCD correct? If not, please try it that way

    I will try your methode. The drives do appear in the bootup as does the raid so I don't they the have failed. The raid update was a secondary update and it was for a paradise driver.

    Paradise driver? What, are you sure?

    That sounds like nothing to do with RAID to me, you only have Intel RAID on your board or Gigabyte/J.Micron.

    I assume you setup your array on the ICH10R, if you are not seeing a disk or array marked as FAILED in the Intel RAID Option ROM (Ctrl + I) or on the AHCI BIOS screen before the IRQ Screen on bootup then you may be able to fix it.

    For sure do not change the BIOS to something other than RAID, and do not read or write to the disks until you are sure the array has failed.

    Do you have a spare hard drive that is not part of this array or that you are not using? If so you could install a temporary copy of Win7/Vista on it, in RAID Mode, and then from there you should be able to see and enter your main RAID array and copy out any needed/important files. Then a clean install would be the easiest way to fix things if the above BCD rebuild does not help.

    I might try that. But something is fixed now. I went into the install disk to try your fix, instead I hit repair. Now it will attempt to start windows on boot up but won't get much further than the part where the 4 colored balls start to swiral. Then it will want to repar the startup but nothing is fixed and it can't do a system restore. If I go into the command prompt, I still can't see anything. there is no files and one big un-named dir. chkdsk shows no errors.

    tried to boot into safe mode but no go... booting with the last known configuration was a no go as well. trying a window installation repair. Definately a driver issue jut wish I could remember the non critical updates were. I don't think I lost anything as it wanted my password and accepted it

    That sounds normal, windows 7 makes a hidden partition during the install unless you made your own partitions previously.

    Since you are getting to the swirling balls but no further, are you sure you have the BIOS set to RAID Still? Check to be sure, at the top part of the Integrated Peripherals BIOS page for the Intel controller.

    Also, go ahead and run another startup repair from the disk, sometimes you have to do that twice so it can fix things.

    Tried a lot of things, nothing worked. I was able to put one of the drives into my wifes computer and get all the files off. I will now reinstall everything. At least I didn't loose the info. Think I'll go with a Raid 0 configuration this time/

    Ohh wow!! So you were using RAID 1 then? Sorry I assumed RAID 0, otherwise I would have told you that you could just put one disk on another PC and get your files.

    Sorry man! RAID 1 you can do that, RAID 0 you cannot.
