And now whenever i try to boot up where it usually said USB and Lion (the HDD), it now only says Lion, and when I try to boot into Lion (the HDD), which is now the only option, it says "can't find" or "Reboot and Select proper Boot Deivce or Insert Boot media in slected Boot Device and press a key". I'm not quite sure what to do here. I've wiped the USB clean and re installed Unibeast, the installer, and bridge helper on it, but it didn't fix the issue. I do not have another computer to reformat the Lion HDD and as far as I know you can't reformat a HDD in bios.

If anyone has an idea on how to get me back on track please let me know. Thanks.

You can by creating a raid array then deleting the array.

In bios set sata to raid, then reboot, then a screen should show up saying Ctrl + F or something to set up the array. Then delete it.

Try to find where to set up an array, then delete it. Or use Gparted (Linux live cd) and partition your drive that way.

im sorry but you've lost me, also I have no optical drive.
Do you think hooking the hard drive up to another computer and reformatting the drive will resolve the issue?

FAT32, and No because you will reformat it to OSX later. :)
