If I were to buy a new hard drive and install in a new computer what would happen if I turned on the computer? I mean what would the monitor show. This is a clean Hard drive.

It depends.

If the BIOS is set to 'AUTO', then it will detect the geometry of the hard-drive, and then will try to boot from the hard-drive, but will unable to find the "boot" information, so it will state "INSERT BOOT DISK".

If the BIOS is set to 'NONE', then it will not detect the hard-drive, and will try to boot from the A: diskette.
