So I'm trying to understand what this post was about (just not so focused), are you trying to teach me how to run in AHCI mode? Or recommending I switch to this mode properly, and see if it restores my OS?
Sorry in advance, I'm just tripping out at the moment. I really want my computer back up with it's original state (prior to the crash).
You can bookmark it for a later date if you feel like trying out AHCI mode. The main thing was just troubleshooting some BIOS settings for your issue.
Try out the recovery method twocables is helping you with and hopefully it was just some corrupt/missing files that can be patched and get you back up and running.
