Trend Chipawayvirus Onguard Wait...

I have an Athlon K6 processor with 256 MB RAM and Windows XP.  I removed the hardrive to change the bay it was located in and the reconnected it.  Now the computer will not boot.  It freezes in the BIOS start-up at the Trend Chipaway Virus scan.  I cannot enter the BIOS by hitting delete because it still jumps to this scan and freezes.  I tried holding the insert button while starting up, and this also did not work.  I have tried clearing the CMOS by disconnecting the power and moving the jumper on the motherboard from position 1 and 2 to position 2 and three while also removing the back-up battery.  This also did not work.  I cannot even get far enough in the boot sequence to open the CD Drives either...

This is my boss's computer and I need to get it back to her as soon as possible and I need help!

can you get into bios without the hard drive connected?  The goal here is to enter the bios and turn off virus protection.

Yes, I just got in and disabled the Chipaway Virus scan, however... It is still getting stick at the "Wait..."  after it checks the NVRAM.

I tried changing the boot order to CD ROM (to bot off of the Windows disk) and that did not work with the hard drive plugged or unplugged.
