I can simply re-install Debian with no trouble, the only issue is that I
don't have the up-to-date list of all the packages installed on the old
PATA drive. I can, though, plug it in and read it as a data drive.

So where on that drive can I find the list of installed packages?

"/var/lib/dpkg/status" should contain information on the installed
packages, if the file is present.
