I recently set up a raid array on a new system. In the process of installing windows updates (restarting) my computer failed to boot. The HDD is now recognized as non-raid where it previously was recognized as raid prior windows updates. My SSD is still recognized as raid cache. I have no backup image to return to, nor is my windows CD able to recognize either drive as an installation destination for a fresh copy of windows.
Thanks in advance!!

the RAID configuration corrupted, Windows is not able to rebuild itself. if your data is important, I strongly encourage you send all drives to a professional data recovery company before all chances of recovery are lost.
