Thanks very much for your helpful reply. Yes, it worked, with slight modification. At first I could only mount the partitions read-only, which of course prevented installboot from writing the mbr. I followed the suggestion on the screen to run fsck and then it worked.

I'd seen Google references to reinstalling the PBR but I didn't know how to do it.
