I have a hybrid disk. After trying to copy some files from another disk to this one, I lost my OSX and Ubuntu boot capability. Ran
gptsync and got:
Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 34 1987 BIOS Boot Partition 2 1988 1029662719 Basic Data 3 1029662720 2108995583 Basic Data 4 2108995584 2109405183 EFI System (FAT) 5 2109405184 2517004287 Mac OS X HFS+ 6 2517266432 2667417599 Mac OS X HFS+ 7 2667417600 3900229631 Basic Data 8 3900230504 3907029118 Linux Swap Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 3907029167 ee EFI Protective Status: MBR table must be updated.

[y/N]
Clearly the MBR table is damaged or mismatched. But it does not reflect the correct GPT table partitions at all. How do I get the MBR repaired to match the GPT table (up to the 4 part limit of course)?
The question is simply - Do I blindly say Yes to gptsync's suggestion? It looks sort of ok but not exactly so...Advice please on interpreting the above output to get my disk usable would be greatly appreciated.
