Sda/sdb are the kernel's conventions.  What matters is what bios sees.
 And that may be different depending not only on the hardware but also
the failure mode - sometimes a drive will fail but not really
disappear from detection and it is hard to emulate that.  Also, back
in ATA days it was pretty common for a failed drive to lock both
channels on the controller.

As long as you have physical access to the box you can fix it fairly
quickly by booting a rescue iso and re-installing grub, even if you
have to try a couple of times to get it right.
