    The SuperGrub CD should let you boot a Linux distro from the hard disk even if the boot loader is broken. Otherwise a fresh install & restoring data backup is probably a good idea.

    You can use PartImage for back up. It will create bootable .iso image and you can restore that image or burn it to CD/DVD to install the same on other machine.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    PartImage homepage has detailed instructions to do that. Just create an image of working system and install it on other machine.
