Well you can try this one, just in case it suddenly works:

I've been using these distros on older HP and Compaq hardware
(of "tricky" ones, whitebox hardware or local brands usually are
just fine) -- not with Dell ones though.

Providing BIOS messages or any other diags available could help
to trace the problem.

Good luck, anyways.
