You also have to set up the BIOS for RAID.
But your issues are bigger than that. Three things have to happen to make a RAID 0 bootable:
RAID setup in BIOS
RAID configured with the RAID configuration utility
The Master Boot Record changed to reflect RAID 0
It's the third step that is your problem. Even if you manage to modify the boot sectors on your HDDs, when you restore the image the boot sector in the image will be copied to one of the drives and you'll have a non bootable installation.
The only way I'm aware of to make a bootable RAID 0 install is doing a Windows install.
