Operating System Not Showing On System Recovery Options Solution

Fixing a computer by the use of system recovery options is one of the greatest ways to fix your windows startup problems. But sometimes when we’re trying to use this features, you do notice our hard disk or windows isn’t listed here.

If your windows isn’t listed in this recovery options, you can’t able to do anything besides running command prompt on your screen and normally this problem only occurred when our HDD gets inactive or maybe it forgets their boot volume.

So, now you’ll need to use some command on the command prompt to fix this problem:



Solution 1# – Fixing Inactive HDD Partition.

Sometimes that partition got inactive due to some reasons and we’ll need to reactive it in order to show it on recovery options.

First open cmd on your computer’s screen by pressing the Shift + F10 Key and then type the command what I’m listed below:

Command #1 – diskpart

This command will start disk part utility in your command prompt. When diskpart will start you’ll able to see “DISKPART>” on the left side.

Command #2 – list disk

This will list all of your connected drives in your computer.

Command #3 – select disk 0

In this step, we’re selecting our main hard drive where your window is installed. In my case, I’m selecting disk 0 because that’s the only drive shown in my cmd and that’s the also one where my OS is installed.

Command #4 – list partition

This command will show you all the partitions created in that disk what you’ve selected.

Command #5 – select partition 2

Normally we are selecting partition 2 because that’s our windows partition but that not prove we will always need to select the 2nd one because sometimes partition 1 can be our windows partition too. So, select the partition where your windows is installed.

Note: Never Select 100 MB, 350 MB And 500 MB Partitions.

Command #6 – active

That will make your partition active.

Command #7 – exit

Now restart your computer and open the system recovery options again to see the changes in it.

Solution 2# – Fixing Windows Master Boot Recode

The MBR or I say master boot recode is the most important data structure on the disk which is mainly created when we make a partition in our hard disk to install windows.

It’s possible your boot volume got corrupted by some recently installed Software, Viruses or Windows/Software updates and it’s better to get it repair as soon as possible So, now we are using cmd command to repair our hard disk boot volume and now you’ll just need a cmd to type the command into the command prompt.

Command 1# – Diskpart

Command 2# – List volume

Command 3# – Exit

You’ll need to find your windows drive letter in that list, like mine is 29 GB D: drive.

Now you know what is your drive letter is, so just enter your drive letter in the command prompt and repeat the following command given below.

Command 4# – D:  (Your Windows Drive Letter)  

Command 5# – Bootrec /fixmbr

Command 6# – Bootrec /fixboot

Command 7# – Bootrec /rebuildbcd  {Skip this command only for the first time and use it if skipping this won’t works after testing but definitely use the chkdsk command written below in every try.}

Command 8# – Chkdsk  /f    (Try chkdsk /f /r If “Chkdsk /f” command Won’t Works)

Command 9# – Y

After “chkdsk” command completes, just restart your computer and I hope your problem is solved.
