If this MBR mean, Master Boot Record, it's a DOS-alike thing.
You require a DOS or Windows 95 / 98 bootflop, containing the program FDISK (forgot if it was .com or .exe)

After booting you get the DOS-prompt which is text-based and looks like :

"A:>_" or "C:>_"

Now, in this case you enter the following: "fdisk /mbr"

So the DOS-prompt will look like :
"A:>fdisk /mbr" or "C:>fdisk /mbr"

Then you hit the ENTER-button at your keyboard and if DOS can find this fdisk-program, it will rewrite the master boot record of your harddisk.

MRB Error message on Gateway laptop 6510GZ. how can we resolve?


First of all I'm not this smart. I found it and pasted it here for you from:
http://www.pcpowerguide.com/windows/damaged-mbr-error-message/

They get all the credit!

MBR is the acronym for Master Boot Record. The master boot record is located in the boot section of your hard drive, which is the first sector on the first platter. When you boot your computer, the master boot record tells the computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) where to find the bootstrap code for the operating system.
So if the MBR is corrupted, the BIOS can't find the operating system and you can get error messages like the following ones:
  • Missing operating system
  • Error loading system
  • Invalid partition table
Looks pretty scary, doesn't it?
However, it is usually not that hard to fix a corrupted MBR and usually the rest f the hard drive is just fine and will boot normally once your fix the master boot record.
What Causes Damage to the MBR? A lot of things can cause damage to the MBR such as viruses designed to corrupt the boot sector. Some of them copy the original MBR to another file. Others do this by overwriting the MBR with virus code. In fact viruses and malware are one of the most frequent causes but, any file can become corrupted especially files that are accessed as frequently as the MBR.
How to Fix the MBR The stapes to fix the MBR are slightly different in the different versions of Windows. So I will cover them separately.

  1. Insert your XP installation disk in the CD-Rom and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Welcome to Setup screen, press "R" to open the repair console
  4. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  5. At the command prompt, type fixmbr and press enter
  6. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  7. Remove your installation CD
  8. Restart the computer
Windows Vista
  1. Insert your Vista installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language and location options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. Select the Windows Vista operating system and click Next
  6. Enter your administrator password when prompted
  7. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  8. When a command prompt appears, type bootrec.exe and press enter to fix the MBR
  9. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  10. Remove your installation CD
  11. Click Restart in the System Recovery Options window
Windows 7
  1. Insert your Windows 7 installation disk in the CD-ROM and reboot the computer
  2. When asked, press any key to boot from the CD
  3. When you get the Install Windows screen, fill in the language, Time and Keyboard Input options and then click Next
  4. Click on the Repair your computer option
  5. In the System Recovery Options, select Command Prompt
  6. When a command prompt appears, change to the boot directory
  7. Now type bootsect /nt60 SYS and press enter to fix the MBR
  8. When a new command prompt appears, type exit
  9. Remove your installation CD
  10. Reboot the computer

Tip

Master Boot Record


MBR Short for <i><b>M</b>aster <b>B</b>oot <b>R</b>ecord,</i> a small <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/P/program.html">program</a> that is executed when a computer <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/boot.html">boots up</a>. Typically, the MBR resides on the first <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/sector.html">sector</a> of the <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/H/hard_disk.html">hard disk</a>. The program begins the boot process by looking up the partition table to determine which <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/P/partition.html">partition</a> to use for booting. It then transfers program control to the <i>boot sector</i> of that partition, which continues the boot process. In <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/D/DOS.html">DOS</a> and <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/W/Windows.html">Windows</a> systems, you can create the MBR with the FDISK /MBR command. <br /> An <i>MBR virus</i> is a common type of <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/V/virus.html">virus</a> that replaces the MBR with its own code. Since the MBR executes every time a computer is started, this type of virus is extremely dangerous. MBR viruses normally enter a system through a <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/F/floppy_disk.html">floppy disk</a> that is installed in the <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/F/floppy_drive.html">floppy drive</a> when the computer is started up. Even if the floppy disk is not <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/bootable_diskette.html">bootable</a>, it can infect the MBR. <br />

I am getting a stop error that leads me to believe the MBR is messed up on my RAID drives. It may also be because the boot sector has become infected. Is there any way that I can set the system up to boot...


If you can install an IDE drive as a first boot drive and install Windows on this hard drive with the SATA RAID drives as the secondary drives, then you may be able to recover your data from the RAID drives.
You may be able to fix the MBR first before installing Windows.
To fix the MBR run the DOS command - fdisk /mbr

System has a virus mbr invected by bloodhpund.mbr how do I delete this. I purchased Norton 2010 but it won't remopve the problem says it needs to be installed but can't get into system to install.


You're Acer probably has Rescue and Recovery™ installed. Rescue and Recovery is a suite of self-recovery tools to help you diagnose, get help, and recover your system.

When you set the Bloodhound heuristics in Norton AntiVirus to it's highest setting you probably ran a virus scan and saw a Norton AntiVirus alert that states that it's detected a potential threat, Bloodhound.MBR. But this is probably not a virus but the recovery software on your laptop.

Solution:

If you have IBM Rescue and Recovery and Norton AntiVirus Bloodhound heuristics are configured to the highest setting, Norton AntiVirus may alert you with a Bloodhound.MBR detection when you run a virus scan. To avoid this, configure your Bloodhound heuristics to the default setting.

To reset Bloodhound to the default setting
  1. Start Norton AntiVirus.
    If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
  2. Click Options.
    If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
  3. Click Auto-Protect.
  4. Click Bloodhound.
  5. Click Default level of protection (recommended).
  6. Click OK
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
    In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
  8. Exit Norton AntiVirus.

Computer will not start and comes up with boot missing any ideas


That means that something is wrong with your Master Boot Record (MBR). If you have a Windows install CD put that in and then boot the machine, do a repair install of Windows. It will fix your MBR and you won't loose any data.

MBR error


MBR = Master Boot Record
It could be that you have a bad hard drive.
Yes, test the CD in another computer (just abort the install after you establish it is ok).
It could also be that your BIOS may be having a problem (the can boot from CD).
