Windows 7 64-bit Pro
Bios Version: 2102 (latest)

My computer died a while back of which I isolated the issue to the RAM modules. Since they were under warranty I RMA'd them and received a new set. Today I installed the new modules and booted up into Windows perfectly fine however being that it's been over 4 months since its last boot there were many new updates available. After downloading all updates a restart was needed. Now the bios no longer will recognize the drives in RAID.

I have to RAID arrays of which both are RAID 0's. The primary is a set up SSDs and the secondary is a set up Samsung 500GB hard drives.

Now Windows is unable to load because there is no media to load to. All drives are not recognized by the BIOS. The only way for the drives to be recognized is if I configure the SATA ports for either IDE or AHCI. Even the optical drives are no recognized while the RAID functionality is enables in the BIOS. Again this setup was working fine before.

I've checked the RAID Arrays and they are functioning properly so no drive health issues. Additionally both arrays are recognized under the boot settings sub category hard disk drive tab. The boot device priority is set to the appropriate RAID array but again the main configuration is showing no drives attached at all. The array with the OS installed on it is the 2nd array. I'm needing help to load back into windows.
