MBR backup:

dd if=/dev/hda of=mbr_backup.bin bs=1 count=512

Swap if/of around to recover the entire MBR .

The partition table is located in MBR at 0x01BE (446) offset and consists of 4 records of 16 bytes.

To recover the partition table only:

dd if=mbr_backup.bin of=/dev/you-device bs=1 count=64 skip=446 seek=446

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal
    but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about
    creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do
    you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for novice blog writers?

    I'd genuinely appreciate it.
