.. also, you can't restore a boot block with cp, the boot block needs to exist in the boot area of the disk.
The reason I asked about the hardware is that on (much) older systems, there were restrictions on how big the root filesystem could be. If it was larger, then the boot loader could fail like this.
If he's running anything at all modern, then this won't be the issue.
