You can figure that out just by going to disk management. Right click start and click disk management. It will show where the boot and system partition is. It sounds like both drives were in during install and the boot partition is in one drive with the system on another. It's somewhat common and why it's recommended to only have 1 drive in when installing windows. You can typically fix it with a recovery from a bootable flash drive.
