Have you tried simply disabling the BIOS on the RocketRAID?

My guess is that the BIOS boot drive order has changed, so even if it
finds grub in some boot order, grub's idea of (hd0) is no longer correct.

If you can get to a grub screen, try editing the root setting from
(hd0,1) or whatever it is to (hd1,1), etc.
