Exclamation IRST helP!!

Hi there,
I've been having this problem with IRST and it really starting to bug me. My system is as follows.
i5 2500k processor
gigabyte z68x-ud3r-b3
2Tb WD cavia green boot drive
Ocz agility 3 60gb ssd
gigabyte gtx460 oc.

Now i install the operating system after puting the computer into raid mode as the guide says, then when i instal the IRST and I restart everything is still working fine. But then when i go to enable IRST either in enhanced or maximised mode it works fine until i restart to computer. After i restart the computer it goes through the usual screens then gets to
"Loading Operating System"
and just sits there making new '.' for a while then does nothing.
Also once or twice it has come up with the screen
BOOTMGR is missing
Please press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
this does nothing as usual.

I was hoping that I might be able to get some assistance with this problem as it is really starting to get on my nerves. I have updated to the latest bios version (and i have also tried all the bios versions) and i am using the latest IRST driver 10.8(but i have also tried the other 10.6 and 10.5) and these do the exact same thing.

I call to the comunity to please help me out. I'm loosing it man

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS/firmware, and damaged or loose HDD cables. or the HDD boot order, OS not first read

Every driver that im using now is the latest with the latest bios as well. all my cables are in their correct spots and neat and tidy. Also once i enable the IRST in windows, the option to manipulate the hard disk priority shows now harddrives. is this because it is in a raid strip? If i cant get it to work i might just sell the ssd and use the HDD which is a bit of a bummer as It was really fast when it was actually working.....
