It could be a bad CMOS battery but it will also give that same error on a clean hard drive with no OS. How did you burn the iso file. You cannot just have an iso file on a disk and it be bootable. You need to burn the iso in Windows 7 by right click and selecting Burn Image or use a software program like Imgburn to burn the image. Isoburner also works.
You said iso files. How many did you download and what were they of?

It's usually a small button battery CR2032 that is used to save the settings in BIOS and attached to the motherboard. From your description, I wouldn't worry about it yet. What computer are you using to post. You have the iso file on a USB flash drive? We can copy the iso file from the flash drive to the computer and then make the Flash drive bootable instead of a CD.

Opening a drive should only be done in a clean room so the drive is probably toast. But, it may be worth a try to retrieve the key by attaching it to another computer.

Good news, I got everything set up in my new HDD But I'm missing the PCI Device. I don't quite know what that is and why device manager is telling me to download it. If there's anything I need to do I'm open to anything.

If you can get the computer on line, and you know either the computers make and model number, or the motherboard make and model number, you should be able to get all the drivers for it from the manufacturers site. If you do, start with the chipset drivers first to be installed.
Windows will have installed the generic drivers for a lot of the hardware already, however other drivers will be needed, but the chipset should be installed first, then all others after that.
