I assume you are talking about an external data disk. I would leave the MBR alone since for this type of disk the most important part is it's partition table which you don't want to damage.

With your external HDD connected give us a look at a Disk Management screen shot.
Go to:
Start orb; type disk management
Make it full screen
then use this tutorial to upload the screenshot.
