@dsolimano I've never managed to figure out how to get that bonus thing people speak of. I'm not terribly fussed either way though.

@Moab with the caveat that they don't actually work and will make your primary HDD unbootable? ><

Success... It booted. After setting the partition to active it just took a couple of runs through the automatic repair. Now I'm back to square one though. I still want to set up the SSD caching.

Update: I used the diskpart program to set the partition as active. Now I'm getting a new set of errors.

I haven't tried detaching the SSD yet, but I have disabled it in the boot order. I will try that next. I've deleted all the raid arrays, but the SATA controller is still set to RAID. I tried AHCI briefly but that didn't help so I set it back to RAID. (Because I believe that's what it needs to be for SRT.) I'm running the built in repair utility and it's telling me the partition table doesn't have a valid system partition, but it doesn't seem to be able to fix it.
