Bios won't access

Compaq / Prosignia 165
June 20, 2010 at 17:21:32
Specs: Bios, Pentium II, 64MB RAM
I have this here Compaq, and it had a dead hard drive. I had another computer laying around, so I loaded the HDD into the compaq. It comes on, will boot floppys and CDs before the HDD, but I need a few options to access that just seems like its not working.

I've tried all the different commands I can, and haven't found a single program that can run from a DOS bootdisk to edit the bios manually. I know that the bios was hidden on a small partition in the original install, but I don't have that drive because its dead. And I can't seem to find any download for it on the internet. Can anyone help with this?

Just a bit too reto

You have to install the BIOS on the new HDD. Do a search for the appropriate ROMpaq.
