Windows 7: Win 7 tries to boot from the wrong HD / STOP Error 0x00000050

28 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

Sorry, this got a tad confusing for me.

I have physical C drive with my main C partition containing Widnows 7 and the system partition.
Then my 2nd HD is physical drive E with only a single partition containing some data.

Which os these needs to be active and which must not be active?
I only have one windows and only want to boot one windows.

Remove the active flag from the E disk as said in post 6. Being a data-only disk it does not need it.

Note how the 100 mb system reserved partition (that has no disk letter and is to the left of C) is currently marked as active as well. That partition is the only one that must remain marked active in your current setup.
C, E and anything else should NOT be marked as active.
