Most likely, your windows installation is corrupted. Installation of
LILO or GRUB shouldn't harm your windows system, so
maybe it's a coincidence that it has a problem now. You could test
this theory by restoring the microsoft bootloader, and then you
wouldn't be able to boot either OS. Lotsa fun. You could
reinstall windows, only after creating a rescue floppy for linux
so you could get back into the system and reinstall the bootloader.
Another option would be to try to diagnose the windows problem,
I'm no expert on windows. Google is your friend.
windows is on separate disk. FIXMBR should work. if windows filesystem got corrupted then reinstall is the only option.
