Put it back to raid and try booting in safe mode (press f8 before windows boot)

if you boot, go to windows log and check for dump error message and post it on forum for help.
if not we have to find out why.

Most of the time it is because of bad ram.

Download memtest86, burn it to disk and boot and test.
If all good, you might want to plug in your drive in a working computer and download hard disk sentinel trial and look at the health.
If all good, might have a problem with installation disk / mobo / psu...
