Oh, Boy.  I am in trouble now....

I just installed Centos on a USB drive on my corp notebook.  To not 
TOUCH my corp drive.

I spent time with the drive partitioner to make sure that nothing was 
done to the internal hard drive...

Well I missed something and I overwrote the encrypted bootloader on the 
hard drive.

Now what?  Can I rescue things?

I am leaving for my flight in a couple hours to Dublin for IETF 
meeting.  I have to get this working on my own.

I hope there is another copy of the old boot loader somewhere on that 
system and some way to copy it?????
