If the two disks are connected to the same flat cable then jumper both as Cable Select, connect the good drive to the end connector and the other one to the mid cable connector. If they are connected to two seperate flat cables then leave the good one as is, jumper the second one as cable select and attach it to the mid cable connector.

Try to disconnect the "good" drive and boot with the "faulty" disk set as master. If nothing shows up, not even BIOS, reset the BIOS by disconnecting the power cable and removing the cmos battery for 10 minutes.
