PVE backups don't care (and should not care) about what is in VM. It
just backup a blob as is. If your VM is already broken, the backup
**should** backup it as is. And that's what happenned to you. Backup has
absolutely no way to check if the boot record is OK or anything else.
This is all the responsability of the VM, not the host.
