    Hello friends,
    Recently i bought new laptop lenovo t430u. it comes with windows 7 home premium. I tried to install ubuntu with it But grub bootloader overwrite original MBR. So how can i fix (Restore) MBR ? I dont have DVD drive. I created factory recovery discs in external HDD. But i don't know how to use it.

    Thanks.
