Default Dual Boot/ Dual HDD problem

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I could not find an answer for my particular problem.

I have two SATA harddrives setup on my system, one with XP and Vista on the other. Both drives booted fine for months until my computer died on me one day. After having it diagnosed as a failed motherboard, I had it replaced with the exact same model, but the dual HDD setup I had before does not work anymore. Each harddrive will boot independantly when only one is connected, but if I have both connected at the same time only the one with XP shows up in the bios settings.

Thank for any help involved.
