What is Master Boot Record?

The Master Boot Record (MBR) is the first sector of a hard drive which contains 512 bytes of information that tells the BIOS (basic input/output system) which is the primary hard disk partition, where the operating system is located on the hard disk and how to start the operating system. After the BIOS checks the primary hardware systems, it then looks at the master boot record so it can properly execute the instructions to start the computer.

What are the Symptoms of MBR Error?

When you start your computer, it stops booting. It displays "Error loading operating system", "Missing operating system", "Invalid partition table", "NTLDR is missing" or "Master boot record corrupted".

Why Appears MBR Error?

MBR Error occurs due to three different causes:

A virus infection: Many viruses target MBR since it is the most important part of your hard drive.

A drive failure: If the area of the hard drive where the MBR is located contains a few defective clusters, the MBR is rendered unreadable.

An MBR overwrite caused by a program: Sometimes some programs overwrite part of the MBR, which will cause the MBR get corrupt.
