    Hello everyone! I'm new here and stumbled upon this forum while looking for answers to my boot problem. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated. I know a decent amount when it comes to computers, but i have no idea how to tackle this one. When i try to boot, i get this message.

    I'm running an Intel core i5 2500k, 16 gigs of corsair vengeance RAM, EVGA z68 sli micro MOBO, MSI PE 660ti graphics card, seagate 3tb hdd, and two Crucial m4 128 gig SSDs in raid0. Running on Windows 8.

    My first reaction to the problem was the SSDs. I just got my second one to put in Raid0. Ive been running it for about 4 days now with no problems. I reset my CMOS, and set up my mobo with the RAID options again. Going into my bios i found out that the array is healthy and the drive is bootable. I took out all of my RAM, switching it around to see if i had a dead stick. Needless to say im at a dead end.

    Thank you for your time, and for any feedback.

    Ok, so my PC will boot if i keep the windows 8 disc in the drive. This is a quick fix but is there a way around this to fix it permanently?

    ntfs is the windows file system,no idea what that before ntfs means,

    normally i would say to run chkdsk /f but never having any interest in raid i would have to assume only

    that it will not corrupt the raid
