They dissapear from the BIOS. The bios sees no disk in the system, so
there is no grub, so there is no kernel, so there is no system. To whom do
I report? Kernel guys?... good grief, they can't do anything.

This is what the bios sees in IDE mode.

I change to AHCI mode:

And finally, this is what the bios says it sees with the three interfaces

Now, what?

Have you tried putting Grub, kernel and initrd on USB or CD to get booted,
and let the AHCI drivers find the disks that the BIOS pretends aren't there?
