No, the BIOS are on a chip on the motherboard and have nothing at all to do with any hard drive.

Hello don363,

No they are seperate. The Bios is permanent ROM, -unless you "flash it". Your hard drive can be written too if not locked.
Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.
Thanks again,
