    Cisco MBR Protection Tool

    I saw this article on PC World concerning Cisco's new MBR Protection Tool:

    My Surface Book uses GPT formatting on a flash drive (and probably uses Secure Boot). Do I have any reason to install this?

    Thanks!

    Not as far as I can tell, the MBR is not used in EFI/GPT.

    cheers, Paul

    That was my thought as well. So my guess is this is more for older machines, not EFI/GPT machines.
