Somehow the partition map on one of my secondary drives got corrupted and now my computer won't get past the AHCI POST. If I clear the CMOS directly on the motherboard, I can get to the BIOS setup but not otherwise. If I switch to IDE, I can boot into my Lion install drive, but then the drives aren't detected.

Can anyone think of a way for me to be able to wipe that drive somehow so I can boot?

Thanks in advance.

boot gparted from usb or cd google "yumi usb".
u can also use linux mint or so live to recover a few files if it works.

first try reset bios defaults then set check settings u need.
