Master boot record

Master boot record is the first physical sector of a boot device (floppy, hard disk, or CD-ROM, etc.) During the process of booting up the system uses the master boot record of the first device. It usually contains a small program-loader and a disk partition table. The program-loader uses the partition information (or a partition table) stored at the end of the sector to determine which partition is bootable, then attempts to boot from it.

Testimonials and User Comments

I just wanted to send an email to say how happy I am with Acronis True Image 6.0. I was in desperate need of a way to image a partition on an IDE RAID controller. I previously had used Norton Ghost but it failed to have support for RAID drives. Luckily I found your product. It worked flawlessly and it is far better than any other product I have used. I especially like the bootable CD option. Keep up the good work!
