  1. System Recovery after Corrupted OS Drive


    My OS drive was corrupted last week. I have an image mirror on an external drive and now on a new internal hard drive. How do I recover and reinstall windows from that mirror? Should I be able to do this from BIOS?

    :)

  4. System Recovery after Corrupted OS Drive

    Recovery Drive

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your concern. In some cases, this could happen if you created a system restore point on your computer. Windows will use the recovery drive to revert to the previous time where your computer is working properly, or where you created
    it. Please don't attempt to put any files in the recovery drive or the restore process will fail. To give you more suggestion and helpful information, we would like to more about your computer. Please answer the question below:

    • Did you make any changes to your computer before this issue occurs?
    • Have you install Windows Update before getting the Recovery drive?
    • Which version of Windows are you using? To check it, follow the steps through this
      link.

    In the meantime, you can check the files inside the recovery drive and confirm if there are essential files that you need.

    We'll be waiting for your response.
