Since you cleared out the MBR you will need to reinstall grub.
I don't have any SATA disk to help you test this, however, I suspect the following...
The default device map in DSL does not have any sdx items.
You should therefore use the (sd0,1) type specifications on both the kernel and minirt lines.
Since you mentioned using a pendrive, then perhaps you are experiencing a change in device names, ie, when booted from pendirve might be sdaX and the sata drive is sdbY. But when you boot with grub from the SATA drive without the pendrive, there is now no sdbY device, therefore error 15
I would at the first grub screen press 'c' to get a grub command prompt and then use the 'find' command to see what the actual device is and then edit that device specification to the boot lines.
