    What's wrong with it now? If you screwed up the MBR on one disk or the other, just boot with a disk then run fdisk with the "secret" /mbr switch to restore the MBR on the "ruined" drive (seems like messing up the MBR would be the most likely screw-up when messing with installs, that's why I assumed that's the problem):
    Code:
    fdisk /mbr
