Yes, I can't understand why what you did would generate a CMOS error involving the clock. I know sometimes when I restore really old images, the Windows clock is off until Windows phones home to the server clock for the current time. But, that's a software thing, not what you experienced.
Now, I have encountered cases where I had a PC that indicated my CMOS coin cell battery needed replacing. I forget the error I got about 10 years ago. But, it indicated the CMOS battery needed replacing, even though the system was relatively new. It was the only time I ever replaced a CMOS battery, too. Didn't solve the problem, though, as I kept getting repeated, random messages of the same thing. Took the PC into a shop. The weird thing was the problem went away when the tech just swapped around the SATA cables of the HDD and the optical burner. No idea WHY he thought of trying that or why it worked, but it seemed to fix the problem as it went away.
