There is no such option in the BIOS, hidden or otherwise. Only desktop and server systems have that.
Your disc(x) command is just showing you things on the OS install image.
OS X is probably finding that there is no usable partition on the internal drive. You could probably get Disk Utility to reformat the whole drive, wiping out your Win7. I never was able to install OS X on a disk after installing Windows, even when I set it up as a GUID boot instead of MBR. I ended up reformatting the disk in Disk Utility, reserving free space for Windows, and installing OS X into part of the disk.

First point is the HDD might not be detected at all even in disk utility (else in the allowed HDDs to install menu you'd see the partitions with an exclamation mark on them and they'd state the reason why you can't install to it). But seeing as to your experience with the matter your most probably right.
Second of all in my dell's BIOS I can change the interface between ATA and another one (IDE maybe not sure).
