That is probably the whole problem.  The SATA should NOT be treated as
an ide device unless you are trying to install something obsolete like
windows XP which doesn't do SATA natively.

IDE channel 0 should have no devices if nothing is connected to the
first IDE port.  Anything else means the bios is misconfigured or
"broken" (Dell's are often "broken").
