the replacement of MBR

Postby sovv » Tue Dec 11, 2012 6:27 am

Hi,
My HDD was marked on partitions using Windows XP.
The option "Use New Windows MBR" enabled.
Will the replacement of MBR on this HDD, if I change the size of the logical drives are on Extended partition?
Thanks for the help

The MBR code is only updated if needed or if you do it specifically (View MBR). Changing the size of logical partitions/volumes isn't going to change the MBR code.

Thanks for your help. For me this is principal moment. I allowed for the possibility that any operation will be followed by MBR code check and change it according to the conditions.
Now I understood that my fears were unfounded.
