Hmmm... I'm not sure what you want to do. Why not just make your 
original disk bootable again?
Anyway, if you can read the repository files, just copy them to 
another safe place, repair/restore your disk from backup, and 
overwrite the repository files with your saved copy.
"Copying the repository" means just copying its directory and all 
subdirectories, nothing special.
