when is MBR created?

When is the Master Boot Record created?

Is it created when you:

1- create a primary partition
2- or when you mark primary partition active
3- or when you format that partition
4- or is it created some other time?

Hello...

The answer is: All of the above.

I would gladly expand on this answer. But I must ask: Why do you essentially never reply or rate any of the answers you get on this forum?

The Master Boot Record, created when you create the first partition on the hard disk, is probably the most important data structure on the disk. It is the first sector on every disk. The location is always track (cylinder) 0, side (head) 0, and sector 1.
