The system (Vista-32) loaded anyway, but I noticed the environment had changed. Firefox bookmarks were gone--my Firefox theme was gone, so I used System Restore. This fixed the Firefox issue, but the error on boot did not resolve.
I ran CHKDSK ... no problems reported there.
I booted from my Vista disc, ran Start Up Repair, and it reported "no problems".
Unfortunately, "Error Occurred (0)" remains, and I'm not sure what I should try next. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
Do you happen to have The Intel Matrix Storage console installed? I found this snippet on the CNET forums doing a quick search at Google...
Same thing happened to me.

Go to Intel Matrix Storage Console, select the drive (Port 0 or Port 1), right click it and select "mark as normal". ITunes did the same thing to me, although it only happened when importing video files. Hope this helps.
fter doing some research (and remembering this topic again), i found out that it's intel's fault, not apple's or microsoft's
How do you know this is the right download? First off, look at your screenshot-- the very first text is the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. The Option ROM is a key piece of the RAID stack that allows Windows to use the RAID volume early in the boot process before it has even loaded drivers.
When you install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, you will be installing two things-- a newer driver, and the Windows UI. The Windows UI is what you'll need to reset the disk to normal. It's very possible that you don't have the UI currently installed, but you most certainly have a version of the driver installed. When you installed XP, you either had to slipstream the drivers onto the Windows CD, or you added the driver using the F6 method (or you bought the system from someone else who set it up this way). This will install the driver, but not the UI.
As far as what version you need-- frankly, any version from 5.6 onward will work fine for you, but you might as well get the latest version.
