MBR-Formatted Embedded Systems Still Common Today

August 11, 2020

The Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning scheme has been with us since the invention of the PC. While it has many great qualities, it also imposes limitations on current hardware. For example, it limits the size of block addresses to 32 bits and four partitions, each with a maximum capacity of 2 TBytes. This can… Read More »
