You don't say what the error was, so it's hard to say what went wrong. Did you try to put lilo in MBR or on the /boot partition the first time?
You don't really need a separate boot partition if you're putting lilo in MBR, which is probably why it worked the second time. You could have used NTFS on /boot partition and lilo would still work in MBR.
Try installing without a separate boot part and put lilo in MBR
