Yes. First, it seems that your boot drive has been installed in IDE native mode, not AHCI or RAID. Switching the controller to RAID simply mess the OS because it does not fint the appropriate driver.
Now, connect the boot drive to the last connector. You probably connected the dvd to sata 6, so connect the boot drive to sata5. Leave the in BIOS set as IDE. now, you can boot the system.
Then, if it boots, restart and in the RAID BIOS, defibe your array.
But the first step should be to check your motherboard's manual as it should have all the info needed to setup a RAID array.
