See BLT.

Master Boot Record (MBR): On all PC fixed disks, the first physical sector is reserved for a short bootstrap program. This sector is the Master Boot Record (MBR). It also includes the partition table.

If this still isn't enough: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/file/structMBR-c.html


Sometimes the dos command fdisk /mbr can be used to restore a partition table on a disk in the event that, for example, Linux has been installed after Windows and you can no longer boot into Windows.
