Connecting 3rd HD causes Windows on Raid array to fail to boot.

So I got the original posted issue resolved. But now I have a new problem.
I have a 2 TB Raid0 array of 1 tb Seagate drives with a bootable copy of Windows and a 2TB Toshiba drive with a bootable copy of Windows.

I want the array to be my active drive. However the Toshiba currently holds all of my data. I've been informed you can clone a single drive to an array but heres my problem- the pc refuses to boot the Toshiba first no matter what I set its priority to in my motherboard BIOS. If I can't boot with it, I cant tell Acronis to clone to the array. Setting my mobo BIOS back to IDE mode of course makes the 2 drives in the array be recognized individually.

What can I do to make the Toshiba be the first boot drive while keeping the array accessible?
