    BIOS settings are saved on the ROM of the motherboard. You will need to reinstall your OS, or restore a backup image if you have one.

    What everything? If the battery(the little coin cell battery on the mobo) has been in all this time and you don't add anything but the hard drive, everything will work when you just plug in the new hard drive and install you OS.
