When you wipe a hard drive you remove the operating system, nothing to boot from, you deleted the boot system. Safe Mode won't work because it still needs the operating system to start.

What do F10 and F12 do? Why can't you get to the BIOS? Have you tried F1 or F2, or Del maybe?

You need to get a Win 7 installation disk, but you can install Win 7 off a USB drive. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=how+to+install+win...

Other option is to buy a DVD drive for the computer, be about $20. Of course the Win 7 license is a different story, that's about $140 for an OEM version.
