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 recently purchased Acronis True Image. This is by far the best image program I have ever used. Without rebooting it made an image of my Win2k system, which was running at the time. Amazing! Also restoring an image from a multiple CD set finally worked for me! Never did with PowerQuest Drive Image. I have already recommended Acronis True Image to all my friends.
