Go into that first option, Standard CMOS Features and see if there is an option to disable SATA. You may have to go deeper into another layer to find something similar (drive configuration maybe?)
I read someone else found it here;
In the BIOS setup goto "Integrated Peripherals", select "OnChip IDE Device", now my "SATA Mode" was set to RAID, so I changed it to IDE and saved the config.
Please confirm for me that:
1. Booting normally to the hard drive still goes through the boot process and gets stuck on the grey screen.
2. Booting to MiniXP you can still access the hard drive and files there-in.

Go into the option Integrated Peripherals, that's where it should be. You also might need to hold Ctrl and press F1 at the main menu to show additional configuration options.

The only way to re-install is with the disc, and being a Recovery Disc, it will revert your system back to the factory delivered state. Nothing will be saved, so should you do that, try to save whatever you want/can vis the Hiren's disc and another media source.
If you care to, we can look at yet another option. I'll go ahead and post it and you can let me know.
From the Hiren's menu, select Start BootCD
Enter 4 or highlight option 4. Recovery Tools and press Enter
Enter 5 or highlight option 5. Test Disk 6.11.3 and press Enter
Once the utility extracts and loads, press Enter at the log screen (doesn't really matter what you select)
The next screen should detect the hard drive, with [Proceed] highlighted - press Enter
The partition type should be [Intel] - press Enter
Select [Advanced] Filesystem Utils and press Enter
If I'm not mistaken, first in the list will be a Fat partition labled [Dell Utility], second should be listed as HPFS - NTFS
Select the second entry - [Boot] should be highlighted below - press Enter
The next screen should report the status of the Boot Sector and backup Boot Sector
I need to know what is reported before we continue. You can press Q or arrow over to [Quit] to exit at any time.
Step-by-step guide for Test Disk here for reference too.

Boot into MiniXP and use the Opera browser to view this post.
Highlight and copy the contents of the code box below.
@echo off echo.>"%userprofile%\desktop\log.txt" dir /b /a:-d c:\windows\system32\dllcache >temp0 for /f "tokens=*" %i in (temp0) do ( if exist c:\windows\system32\drivers\%i copy /y c:\windows\system32\dllcache\%i c:\windows\system32\drivers& echo %i copied to drivers>>"%userprofile%\desktop\log.txt" if exist c:\windows\system32\%i copy /y c:\windows\system32\dllcache\%i c:\windows\system32& echo %i copied to system32>>"%userprofile%\desktop\log.txt" ) start notepad "%userprofile%\desktop\log.txt" exit cls
Open a command prompt and paste the copied text.
When it completes a log will open - post it's contents here.
Reboot and see if logon is successful.
Not sure it's been tried since completing some of the operations we have, so if there's no change, use F8 to enable the advanced start menu and try both Safe Mode and Enable VGA mode to see if it properly loads.
