I upgrade my 2nd HARD Disk to 1tb and I was getting an Invalid Partition Table! error. In an attempt to repair the boot information, I damage my C drive and now it would not boot.

What operating system are you using? Have you tried to remove the 1TB drive and boot the system up with just your OS drive?

window 7, removing the 1tb gives the same results. I tried to do a repair with a boot disk and same results.

It sounds like you may need to do a repair on the partition table. You should download something like GPARTED (it is a live CD) and see if you can repair it.

Without knowing what you did when you were trying to get the 1TB drive to work it is going to be very difficult to get you back up and running. When you said you tried to repair the boot information what exactly did you do?
