I bet you this is an issue with hardware, and x86 notoriously sucks
at that, so the broken disk somehow blocks the IDE channel for hdb,
which is the same for hda, and then the system dies because it
cannot use / anymore.

For RAID on IDE, i suggest only using one drive per channel, so
never configure slaves.
