Partition tables are stored in partition boot sectors.
I have a Dell windows 7 laptop that suddenly is unable to boot: stops at a blinking cursor line after the Dell logo appears and is unresponsive (I can load the BIOS (F2) and the boot menu (F12) before the lock, but that's it).
Unfortunately, I don't have access to the Win7 install disc, so can't use Microsoft's recovery tool.
They are followed by the partition table, with a length of 64 (0x40) bytes.
The last two bytes contain a magic number that is sometimes used to verify that a given sector really is a boot sector.
