Me either - as far as I knew you had a working system you wanted to
swipe a disk out of.
Now you have a system that won't boot?  How did you get there?   i.e.
is this one of the other disks and you tried to install it elsewhere?
 or the original system minus a disk?  or ?

Please tell us enough info to help.
