Not unless you are in the middle of a firmware update. A bad hard drive may cause the system to be temporarily unbootable through a POST, but once you remove a bad HDD everything should be working again. However if your HDD was previously not working, I would count on it failing pretty fast. Hard Drives cannot fix themselves. They can block off bad sectors, but those sectors will eventually spread out causing the hard drive to be worse off than before.
With how cheap hard drives are nowadays, just grab a new one from newegg, it'll save you the trouble of losing all your data.
