First at all when you had the drive A alone it is known as sda, adding another one it is labeled as sdb, when unplug A and let B alone, installing debian alone will be installed as sda not as sdb, it will work fine just in B plugged alone, conecting drive A of course wont run drive B , because is searching in drive A sda now and should be looking at sdb, giving you the problem because is obviously that debian is in drive B not in drive A.
It is fixeable! I have not do this kind of changes, so i recomend you the easy way to reinstall debian with drive A plugged, what you need to do is to skip the grub installation part in that way you wont rewrite the boot loader of ubuntu just say no when the installation ask to do it, in that way you will preserve the ubuntu grub loader, then just go inside ubuntu and add the drive B loader point.
The rush mode or the hard way is to go inside drive B alone and change everithing o be found in sdb not in sda, but it is a little hard i think so i think is easy reinstall debian if you do not have anithing important than changing everithing.

Anyway, like I said, everything seems to be working so far, but I'll look more into what you were explaining when i plug my other system back in again. This has been very helpful information, and I appreciate every bit of it
Thanks Jonathan183 for sticking around so long!
