Finally got around to fixing this today, as darkod mentioned, for some reason the reserver partion was on the raided hard disk.
i backed up my stuff to a seperate usb HD. disconnected the Raid HDs. and did a repair of window 7, fixing the mbr.
once windows was back running of the SSD, i was able to install ubuntu 13.04
so far so good, boots really quickly on the ssd.... thanks for all your help..
