With bootsect.exe /nt** e: I assume, despite bootsect.exe help speaks of "master boot code", it is intended to apply the partition boostrap code to the partition identified by letter E:.

Given this, when the /mbr switch is used, are both the master boot code and the partition boot code updated or only the former?
