Not really. It's not just the MBR - it damages the partition table.

Someone even reported that it corrupted a partition table of an unused HDD that was plugged to his machine, even though he was installing it on another HDD.

I myself have managed to fix it quite easily by changing the HDD type to LBA in BIOS and running fixmbr&fixboot from the windows recovery console, but seems like its not always as easy as that.

Talent does what it can. Genius does what it must. You do what you get paid to do.
