Changed RAM, recognized, but "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media"

I just upgraded from 4gb RAM to 8gb RAM (2x4gb memories) and after installing this message appeared: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key".
I have an ASUS P7P55D-LE motherboard, and 2 HDD 500gb that work in syncrony. When I press the mem OK button the motherboard recognizes both HDD and the CD/DVD drive.
Even though it recognized, it just won't boot.
I tried all combination of "boot device priorities" and none did the work.
This problem happened once before, I took to the technician and he told me the fix had something to do with the memory being stored in two HDD that work together...
How do I fix this, please??? I want to play my COD ghosts (thats the reason I upgraded my RAM memories).

    Sounds like RAID has been disabled - neeed to go to the BIOS and find the HD type setup and select RAID (Choices often IDE, RAID, AHCI (a variety of those) then it should show a RAID in the boot priorities, set that to first choice
