The OS bootmanager isn't part of the BIOS. In the case of your OS it's part of the OS itself and gets installed by it on the active drive with the primary partition. As you deleted the old installation you also deleted it's partition manager with all it's info about the other OS on the other disk.

You could try using EasyBCD to add your other server back into the menu:
