Jamie suggested verifying that the problem is indeed with the disk and not with the controller, so I tried switching the original boot disk to Slot #1 (from Slot #0 where it normally resides), but the same problem persists - the green "OK" indicator light keeps flashing even in Slot #1, which was verified to be a working slot using the spare 2.5 inch disk. So I think it is reasonable to conclude that the problem is with the boot disk itself.

The disk is a Seagate Savvio 10K.2 146GB disk. The datasheet doesn't explicitly suggest any recovery options. But Table 24 on page 54 suggests that a blinking LED means that the disk is "spinning up or spinning down". Is this indicative of any particular failure moed? Any ideas on how to go about recovery? Is it even possible to access the data on the disk if it doesn't spin up to the nominal operating speed?

I think this is the boot disk failure. I put the spare 2.5 inch disk into the slot #1. The OK indicator of the disk became solid green almost immediately, and it was recognized on the BIOS in the boot section as "Hard Disk". On the contrary, the original disk in the slot #0 has the "OK" indicator kept flashing and the BIOS can't find the harddisk.
