This indicates your BIOS does not detect the drive and tries to boot from the network. Remove the drive and make sure it's connected properly. Was the hard drive acting normally before you removed it?

Create a boot disk on another computer and test the hard drive. Do the short and long test. This will only work if the drive is detected in your BIOS settings.
If the drive is not detected in BIOS then you can remove it and attach it to another computer using a USB adapter. It will not cause problems with the other computer. Use Seatools for Windows if you decide to attach the hard drive to another computer for testing.

I should add that it may be possible to check the hard drive using Dell Diagnostics by tapping F12 at boot. Do the Full System Diagnostic.

That error indicates the computer does not detect the hard drive. When you look at your BIOS settings is the hard drive shown?

Firstly, there are no jumpers on SATA hard drives which this computer has. You can remove the drive and attach it to another computer to verify if it's failed which I believe it has. This can be done with a USB adapter similar to this. You may find one locally.
