I know it is too late to say this, but there is a "important" warning use external AC power when updating bios and not turn off power even if the computer seems freeze.
If you can still boot to DOS, then try dos bootable disc version of the bios update. But it sounds like the bios is corupted, this option is probably out. I think the best thing to do is send it to hp service, unless you now how to open up the case and find the jumper for bios reset.
BIOS is usually stored in a ROM chip, not on the hard drive.
