MBR Error 1 and 2 after clean Fedora 24 installation over Windows 10

Hi everyone,

I've performed a clean installation of Fedora, and since I had decided I won't be needing Windows 10 any more I've checked 'Free additional space' option and clicked 'Delete all' button on the follow-up disk configuration screen, since that seemed only option not resulting in a 'Disk configuration error'. After installation, I tried to restart my machine, but now I'm getting 'MBR Error 1' prompt. I can still boot the Fedora installation when I go into 'Boot options' manually, but I would be nice not to have to do this every time I start my machine.

I did the research, and there seems to be a couple of methods to fix this (using Ubuntu live-USB and Boot-repair tool, using syslinux command, reinstalling GRUB?), but since my situation isn't like anything I found, I'd like to ask what would be the best, safest option to repair my MBR records?

Did you by any chance end up with a strange mix of MBR and GPT?

It's possible, but I don't know how to verify it. Can you tell me how to check it?
