    Question Avoid reinstalling the MBR


    Dear all,

    In the following days I am about to perform a Windows 7 - Kubuntu 11 dual boot on my new Dell laptop.

    I have been reading about some issues with the MBR being overwritten when updating either Linux or Windows. I had found a website which explains how you can setup your MBR from the start to avoid the need to fix/reinstall your MBR after updating either Linux or Windows. Unfortunately I am now unable to locate that website. I already have taken a look into my browsing history but could not find anything.

    Does somebody know which site I am referring to? Or does somebody know how to avoid any future MBR screw ups right from the beginning (clean unused laptop).

    You have my thanks!

    I remember that the fix had to do something with not installing MBR in the default /mbr folder.
