Lenovo BIOS update wiped out McAfee firmware.

I just installed a BIOS update from the Lenovo auto update utility. After I rebooted I got an error message "missing operating system". I am assuming that the update wiped out the firmware that is able to decrypt the disk. Since my drive is encrypted I can't simply run the windows repair disk. How do I recover from something like this?

 

My company (Oracle) mandated that I use this software but I have always been concerned about my ability to recover my data if McAfee did not work. Now my fears have come true and I can't access my data. I think I need some utility that will restore the BIOS firmware so I can decrypt my drive. Some gogle searches have not pointed me to anything. Please assist.

 

Thanks,

Chad.
