XAMPP does not use the registry for anything other than Windows Service entries for Apache and MySQL if selected when installing.
XAMPP does not change any registry entries just adds the ones mentioned above and so has no effect on POST or the BIOS.
XAMPP plays no part in the boot process other than just mentioned and that process is not actioned until Windows has started after the PC bios has finished.
If after checking all the usual things like cable connectors etc., then your issue looks like a problem with the bios settings and there should be a key stroke to access the bios as soon as you turn on your PC where you can check what the error message suggests and see if the boot Hard Disk is being seen and the boot order is as you expect.
So in effect this is a PC issue with possibly cable connections, the P
est or the B
ystem not an issue that could be caused by XAMPP but worst of all it could signal that your Hard Drive has failed, not an uncommon occurrence.
