If they are different makes, models or sizes, then you may be able to figure it out that way.

Run "diskmgmt.msc" and you may see a link between drive letter and physical drive.

Otherwise, you could try to carefully disconnect one of the drives from the motherboard and see which system is left when you start the computer. (Umm. If the computer doesn't boot, then that means you disconnected the drive with the master boot record and none was present on the other drive.
