Seriously. The context of the thread was that the OP didn't realize the laptop had embedded memory in it. What's the point of nit-picking to this level, other than to belittle someone else?
I guess if we want to nit-pick, I'll state that your comment is false, and SledgeDG is correct. The BIOS is an operating system, but the computer won't move past the POST...which where the BIOS ceases to be the operating system. The BIOS will run enough to politely tell you there's no memory installed. Many laptops won't even go that far, as they will immediately tell you to install memory before it could even attempt the post.
I don't mean to single you out, but we aren't playing Technical Trivial Pursuit here. There's no reason to belittle someone else and muddle the info given at the same time.
