Huge issues starting windows 7?
Okay so I did something stupid, I was trying to access my BIOS but it would start up too quick for me to see the options so I kept restarting the PC.
I get all of these errors when I go into windows recovery and it won't go past this. I've tried every option with the F8 menu,
Info: missing or corrupt
Info: kernel is missing or corrupt
Info: file is possibly corrupt. It's header checksum does not match the computed checksum
Is there anyway that I am able to wipe my hard drive from BIOS so I can start fresh?
Do I need a new hard drive now?

Your Windows 7 has been corrupted.
Format and Install a new copy of Windows 7 on your system to fix this issue.

"Do I need a new hard drive now?" It sure sounds to me like your hard drive is DYING.
And, no, you do not need to re-format your hard drive prior to trying to do a full System Recovery, as explained in the PC's User Manual.
TIP: If the re-install fails, take your PC, and your BURNED Windows Recovery DVD, to a reputable Repair Depot to replace the hard drive. And, I do hope you have a recent Backup of your Personal Data files.
