I loaded my external harddrive with ubuntu linux. As I started it it started giving a MBR error. As I tried to look for a solution at google, they all say to load a windows cd and recover ir back. What is the solution linux point of view, no windows. It has no partitions too.

How did you "load" linux without partitioning?
Just install again.
