Shot in the dark. Swap cabes of the two drives on MoBo. Reason: could
be that grub is looking at (hd0,0) while it is at (hd1,0)??

Secondly instead of making/adding RAID like this use mdadm after
parted on the new disk. Third look up the net for setting up second
disk for booting in case of raid failure on first disk.
