The information shows you how to recover the master boot record (MBR) in any version of Windows: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, or 10.
What is MBR?
MBR (meaning ‘master boot record’) is a boot sector (an area on the hard drive) that contains information about the hard drive partitions and provides a charger for the mobile phone system of your choice ۔
When you first install Windows, a central record of this storage is created for the first partition you create. This will be the first 512 bytes of your hard disk.
If the MBR is damaged, you will not be able to use Windows. All versions of Windows. Use Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8-MBR and if damaged, you can’t restart.
You can back up the MBR because it is stored on the hard disk and you will restore it later if needed. All you need is one command to back up MBR.
dd if=/dev/sda of=/path-to-save/mbr-backup bs=512 count=1
dd if=/path-to-get/mbr-backup of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1
Fixed: Rebuild the MBR manually
