Recover Data before Fixing Invalid System Disk Error in Windows 10
As you cannot boot Windows because of the “Invalid system disk. Replace the disk, and press any key” error message, you can try using the MiniTool Power Data Recovery Bootable 7.5 to carry out data recovery. Note: Only the Deluxe and above versions offer MiniTool Bootable Media Builder, and here I take Personal Deluxe for example.
Step 1. Get MiniTool Power Data Recovery Personal Deluxe, and install it on another computer.
Step 2. Launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery, and then click on this icon in the bottom of the main interface to create bootable CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
Step 3. Boot your Windows with the bootable drive to get its main interface as follows.
Step 4. Now, select a suitable data recovery module to recover data from PC with invalid system disk error.
Step 5. After that, select the target partition and then click on Full Scan button which is located at the lower right corner to scan the entire device to find desired data.
Importance: In this window, you can click on the Settings feature to make MiniTool Power Data Recovery scan needed files only by file systems and file types. For example, if you just want to recover photos, you can only check the option “Graphics/Pictures“, click on OK button, and choose Full Scan to scan the drive containing lost data, as shown below.
Step 6. After the full scanning, you are supposed to select all needed files and then click on Save button to appoint a saving path to store them.
