Follow this guide:
with the exception that on the sixth screen you need to select
"Rebuild BS" rather than "Backup BS" (because in your case rather than
the boot sector being clobbered while having a valid backup, both the
current boot sector and the backup are based on your previous setup's
starting sector for the partition).
