Default PC boot screen, BIOS, Safe mode on HDTV?

Hi, I'm planning to build a HTPC and purchase an LCD HDTV and connect them via DVI/HDMI, but I'm a bit worried if most HDTVs will display the resolution of the boot screen, BIOS screen and Windows Safe Mode.

I think these resolutions are 640x480x60Hz, and I think that this would be compatible with 480p, but I'm not sure.

So my questions are:
1). Are the PC boot screen, BIOS screen and Windows Safe mode indeed always 640x480x60Hz on regular PCs?
2). Will HDTV indeed interpret this as a 480p signal, if transferred via DVI/HDMI?
3). Since the 480p HD format normally means 480x720, what will happen to the missing 720-640=80 columns? Will the image be stretched? Will I see two black vertical bars left and right?

Thanx
