I'd think a bios if set correctly would boot to the bios time no matter what OS is on it. To get that to happen a bios have to be known to work with auto power on settings. Some types of hibernation or standby could affect this. I think the state is something like S5 or such but you can look that up. You may have to enable the correct state. Other issues would be power supply. If you set an OS-less system it should still try to boot up.
