the MBR is 512 Bytes in size. the boot partition would not ever fit there. (that is only 64 ASCII characters!! --english royalty couldn't fit their names there!). The MBR is used by grub to start the chainloading process.

comment Ubuntu Frozen every time when Memory usage over 80%
you might consider installing zram-config although it is a swap file in RAM, it is compressed and might make the difference. Sure did on that netbook I had. Another thing to consider is adding vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50 to /etc/sysctl.conf

comment Lost all my old partitions while i installed ubuntu in win 8.1
You overwrote your data... You could try to download another copy of 8.1 and install it, but you won't get your personal data back. For that you should ask the NSA really nice as it seems they probably have a copy.
