What does MBR mean?

The information in the first sector of a hard disc or portable drive is known as the MBR. It specifies how and where the operating system of the system is stored in order for it to be booted into the computer's main storage and random access memory(RAM). The MBR contains a program that reads the boot sector record of the partition containing the operating system to be booted. The record, in turn, contains a program that loads the rest of the OS into RAM.
