MBR, the acronym of the Master Boot Record, is always stored in cylinder 0, head 0 and sector1 and is created when users create the first partition on the hard disk. The Master Boot Record comprises Master Boot Program, the Partition Table for the disk and a small amount of executable code for the boot start – 55AA. The location is always the first sector on the disk. The first 446 bytes are MBR itself, the next 64 bytes are the Partition Table and the last two bytes in the sector are the mentioned signature word for the sector. MBR is vitally significant for a computer, for it directly decides whether certain operating system can boot or not.
