    Ok so I have a few things to cover here

    I needed to rip out 1 of my WD 2TB HDDs for warranty replacement and figured I would switch up my fans slightly for some better cooling on my HDDs. Anyways, put everything back together(minus 1HDD) and my RAID0 array of SSDs failed on one disc. I double checked connections and had no luck so I said heck with it and will start from scratch.

    Now I did a secure erase on both SSDs after deleting the raid and reinstalled win 7 as usual. So I get in windows and I noticed that one of my 1TBs was not showing up. Checked connections over and over, still not showing up EXCEPT in the BIOS.

    So I planned to work on getting Windows updates, drivers, apps, etc back the way they belong. I rebooted a few times, no problems. Then, out of the blue it throws me an error "SOJVZ not found"(spaces are prolly irrelevant but just stating the exact error message. A google search turned up nothing relevant in the least. I boot in to BIOS and tweak the boot order, same error. Tried a few reboots, finally windows boots.

    Ok so now I am in windows but needed to reboot again for whatever reason. Reboot, same error. I try disconnecting the other HDDs(cables were plugged in to controller ports just not HDDs) and reboot. Same error. Tried a few reboots and now it says "reboot and select proper boot device or insert Boot Media in selected drive and press a key."

    Right now I am using Firefox in parted Magic. From withing pmagic, I checked SMART attributes, they are fine. I loaded gparted in pmagic, and it does not even appear as though there is a RAID array installed but yet my BIOS says the array is just fine.

    I am baffled as to what the heck is going on here and what a "SOJVZ" is. I may be way off, but I am wondering if the latest Intel chipset drivers are at fault. I believe that was the last thing I did. Any ideas what is going on here?

    Does sound strange, my first thought is that the problem is with the chipset and/or raid drivers. When it was all set up and working before you sent the WD back, did you install that setup yourself?
