(0 votes)

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

    Hi are using Wordpress for your blog platform? I'm new to
    the blog world but I'm trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Howdy, I do believe your web site could be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it has
    some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide
    you with a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic website!

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured
    I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

    seem like you know what you're talking about! Thanks

    An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a coworker who had
    been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought
    me dinner simply because I stumbled upon it for him...

    lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this matter here on your internet site.
