You need to understand what a computer's BIOS is. It's not part of the hard drive, although it does help in recognizing attached hard drives to a computer.
The only thing you need to worry about with the BIOS is possibly upgrading it when you recieve your Mini 9, and that requires either a working operating system, either installed on the SSD or bootable from a USB device (flash drive or external hard drive.)
Installing an SSD upgrade is relatively simple: swap the SSD hardware, then install your new operating system using an external CD/DVD, bootable USB stick, or any of countless methods documented here.
