try flashing to the newest BIOS for the R4E, and aslso make sure that you have the latest Intel Raid Controller Drivers. Double check your BIOS again and make sure that the board is set up to RAID and not AHCI. I have noticed with my board that some changes in the BIOS will change the drive type from RAID to AHCI.
EDIT: As Area 66 said MoBo swapp with a software RAID is bad. The 2 boards have different chipsets, thus the reason the R4E wasn't reconizing your old RAID set-up from the M4E.
Its a simple x79 vs P67 chipset difference. Yes both made by Intel, but they are not compatible with each others RAID configuration.

Ya Houndazs may have apoint here, if for some reason your BIOS reset to default value, you may not be in Raid
also you don't swap a motherboard and expect to reuse the Windows on raid drive. Did you at least remove those drives from a raid configuration before rebuild the new raid array ? I see Ghost and Acrronis in your tread, this is a NO NO with Raid disk + MOtherboard swap , when you say you make a fresh install and you just have to reinstall your Program, I'm worry, did you or not do a fresh install, or you just run the install over the old Windows ?
So with a raid setup how do you do a back up of your system??
make sure to check the intel RAID (Ctrl-I at bootup) to make sure that it says "RAID Disk" and not "Non-RAID Disk" next to your SSD that you have setup in a RAID. You can see this during the boot message, and if it goes away too fast (as mine does) you can press the "Pause" key on your keyboard to pause the screen so that you can read all the info in it.
yes it is set to raid, I also was thinking of just going with a OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express SSD and not using the intel raid controller what do you think about this drive?
