Bitlocker on raid 1 windows 7 Ult64

Further to my last question, here goes.
I have a gigabyte z97 mb with intel rapid technology on it that provides raid 1 that I require with a pair of Samsung ssd,s. I also need to encrypt the drives with bit locker  however I am confused regarding the mechanism when and if one of the drives fails.
Could someone please clarify if I am chasing my tail or is what I want to do practicable ?

Bitlocker does not change anything regarding the raid and its recovery process. No need to worry.

So i can just go ahead with "the plan" and not worry about stuff i've read regarding GPT/uefi drive problems and all the stuff about bcd editing ?

In a RAID 1 system, both drives are mirrored, so there is absolutely nothing to worry about. If 1 fails, the other will work just fine, as will bitlocker.
If I get you right, you are using the onboard raid controller and not the OS software raid. The onboard raid will let windows think there is just one drive and thus, there is no bcd editing needed in no case.
