I connected the good hard drive to port 0. I left the bad hard drive disconnected. I received the following message on on of the screens during the boot process:
Drive 1 not found: Seriel ATA, SATA-1
Drive 2 not found: Seriel ATA, SATA-2
Then it told me to pres F1 to continue, F2 to enter the setup configuration utility. I don't believe the computer continues to boot into Windows until I press F1. So, it requires user interaction.
Edit: If I press F1, the computer continues to boot into Windows normally and successfully.
