Mbr problem

Hi and Many thanks

I have two hard drives in my computer both 500gb. I cloned the master drive onto the slave and when trying to start from the slave drive I get the message:

A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart. When i do this it just keeps coming back to that screen.

I was told that the MBR needs to be rewritten or fixed - would that be right? I have hirens boot cd and am running winows 7 can I fix this with hirens boot cd or the windows 7 disc?

Many Thanks for your help
