There's no particular link between the brake booster installation and a no-start condition. If you disconnected the battery while putting the booster in, check that the battery connections are tight, clean, and not cracked or broken. After that, start doing what it sounds like you are doing, troubleshooting for the problem. Try the fuel pump by turning the key into the on (but not start) position and listening for the buzzing from the fuel tank as the pump pressurizes for a few seconds. If you can't hear this, your fuel pump relay may be bad.
