    Do you have RAID, or was a drive every RAID, or was system Intel SRT (UltraBook)?

    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5629389 to answer your question on raid i'm not sure, i have multiple hdd in a system that has raid, but as i understand raid the drives need to be the same size for raid to work properly, if i'm not right please let me know all the hdd installed on my system are different sizes and brands, so as far as i was aware raid was not enabled, could the ubuntu instalation of enabled this? hope this helps i think i can disreguard intel srt this is an amd desktop system, if you need any more info just ask

    It looks like this drive sdd was once RAID. Drives retain the meta-data. And then tools will not work on RAID drive as they should not if it really is a RAID drive.
    ERROR: ddf1: wrong # of devices in RAID set "ddf1_SSDRAID" [1/2] on /dev/sdd

    sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sdd

    It looks like you have grub in every drive. I would reinstall a Windows boot loader to your Windows drive.

    After removing RAID and booting, you will have to run this to get os-prober to add Windows to your grub menu.

    sudo update-grub

    ok checked to see if raid is enabled in bios it is not, booted to live disk and ran the code provided ian@ian-GA-MA780G-UD3H:~$ sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sdd
    [sudo] password for ian:
