Fix Invalid Partition Table on Windows computers
To fix the Invalid Partition Table on Windows 11/10 computers, we would like to suggest the following solutions:
1] Run Automatic Startup Repair
Most of the Startup related issues are caused by a damaged MBR or OS files. So the first step is to use Automatic Repair on your Windows computer to fix the error.
2] Rebuild MBR
If the Startup Repair fails then follow the manual method. You will need to boot into Advanced Startup Options and then use the command prompt to run some commands to rebuild the MBR.
3] Use 3rd-party freeware
Use MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable CD. This is an excellent tool to manage Partitions, and the best thing about this tool is you get the bootable disk version.
You could download the ISO Image and burn it to a disk, then boot using this disk. It will prompt you to choose the program and screen resolution, so select the appropriate options. Then select your primary partition and from the right-hand panel select “Rebuild MBR.”
Sometimes the Windows loader drive won’t be set as active, and in such cases, you might face issues with booting. So we need to mark the partition as active. In order to mark the partition as active go to Partition from the Menu bar. Then go to Modify and Select “Mark as Active”.
Sometime that option might be grayed out. In such cases, you might need to Set the Partition as Primary. Then you should be able to get that option. If none of the options works then you might want to consider running Hard Drive Diagnostic to check the consistency of the drive.
Hope this helps!
