How can I recover Windows mbr using Ubuntu?
To fix MBR using Ubuntu you firstly need to have an Ubuntu Live CD/USB. If you do not, visit their website and download the .ISO image for free and burn it onto a CD-ROM.
Boot the computer with Ubuntu Live CD-ROM.
Once it's booted, open the Terminal (little black box that looks like a Windows command prompt) and write in the following.
sudo apt-get install lilo
This will install a program called lilo.
After the installation write in the following.
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
And there you have it, your MBR is fixed.
