You may have several disks in your computer, if the internal disk is not set as the first boot disk, then you tend to receive such errors. Computers will automatically find one disk which is probably invalid for booting to do this process. Thus you should check whether you have set the right disk for computer boot or not.

If you are installing/reinstalling your computer operating system, but the process is interrupted by accidents like power failure, then the invalid boot disk error is prone to occur too. But sometimes, you might fix it by using Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) tools.

5.Use disk management software

Sometimes, many make use of disk management software. But if the tool supports for large disks which are not available in your computer’s Basic Input/Output System (BIOS), then this kind of error will show up as well.

6.Virus infection

Virus is so annoying and can lead to a mass of troubles. If boot-sector virus attack your computer successfully, then it will destroy or chang the process of computer booting  entirely. Accordingly, you are likely to receive error message saying “Invalid System Disk”.
