    I would guess with a new mobo you need to reinstall windows,however dont format or delete the old windows and just reinstall over the old this might reinstall drivers etc windows needs to setup/run.
    The raid array is usually specific to the mobo and hard drives so you might be able to rebuild ,but normally you need to start again,so try to reinstall windows first would be my choise.
    I have to say though "Rule One" applies and for others reading this

    Rule one - backup
    Rule two - see Rule one........:)

    you cannot use the old os with a new motherboard. Copy all of your important data somewhere else. reformat, reinstall the os on the new HD and copy your data back.
