I do not see a active flag.
The top line in your post with the blue blob doesn't look familiar.

Memory allocated by the system.

What active flag?

If I understand this correctly, to get rid of the message shown in Post #1,

In BIOS:
Remove the Network adapter from the list of bootable devices
Or, re-prioritize the list so the adapter is after the HD, Optical Drive, etc.

Notice my System Reserve. (Active)

I'm trying to see where the (Active) is located on your system.

Thank you David for coming to help.

He has UEFI install to a GPT partition which doesn't use Active flag or MBR to boot.

It does look a little strange but no doubt since it's labeled EFI.

I believe David has the correct answer as to how to have it stop prompting for network boot. Remove it from BIOS boot order. I'd set HD as first to boot.

Thanks Greg for the help and information.
My concern was removing something when not knowing what the system was booting from.

From my sig. Thanks to all.

Feel free to help me help other members

Since you have a EFI Boot partition the Boot Priority setting should be set to UEFI First, not Legacy First as it would be only if you have a normal MBR disk install.

We have to assume you have a UEFI install since it has the EFI partition, even though there is no second MSR partition as per normal. But we are seeing more that don't have one so it's possible you also have an install that didn't issue the MSR partition supposedly required on Win7 UEFI installs.

If this doesn't help you can also try changing Boot Mode although that should not affect this, but is meant to provide access to normal media boot without UEFI, and MBR System Disks.
