MBR (Master Boot Record) is a boot sector that holds information such as the partitions of the drive, logical partitions, etc. It also acts as a loader for the operating system as it contains the executable code. The MBR is created when you first install the windows and the partitions are created. The support for MBR was first introduced with the IBM PC DOS 2.0 in 1983 and has been used ever since.
