RAID boots differently from single drives - I suspect that there's an issue between the RAID and the bootloader. Because of the errors that you're receiving, I wonder if there's a connection of some sort between your RAID boot and the other hard drive. I wonder if your RAID array is initializing/set to the point where it knows to boot from the array (rather than from a single disk)
Not knowing that much about RAID, I'd suggest removing the storage hard drive and repairing the RAID installation with the Vista Startup Repair.
What concerns me (and I don't have the knowledge to explain this) is that the RAID BIOS/array seems (at least on my system) to boot before the boot menu becomes available. So you have to manually turn over control to the RAID array in the BIOS each time. In other words, the system will POST, then you'll have to select the RAID array to boot into Vista - or opt out of the RAID array to boot into XP.
In short, I'd guess that this was a problem with the settings in the RAID BIOS/settings that may not be recognizing the bootability (?) of the array.
