Ran "EP45UD3P Snow Leopard install package" on a system disk

So I was reading this tutorial, and I managed to screw up by running the mentioned "EP45UD3P Snow Leopard install package". However, instead of selecting the thumb drive to run it on, I ran it on the system disk. Skipping the recriminations, and my blatant stupidity, the program basically does this (the terminal work section). As far as I can tell, the program was to place a custom EFI bootloader on the thumb drive, so I'm wondering if I've killed my own bootloader and I haven't dared to restart the machine since.

 

Someone suggested I just install this firmware update, but frankly I'm hesitant to fiddle with anything of the sort without advice from people who know more than me.

Um, so the program left a folder called "extras" and a file called "boot" on the system disk. The "extras" folder can be deleted, I suspect. But what about the "boot" file? Is there supposed to be a "boot" file on the top level of the system disk?
