    my mean of "system" was that "System Reserved"
    but i dont have any active partition.
    and install Open Suse 12 after it i uSe from Suse boot loader to start my windows
    with this condition,is it necessary to mark each partition as active ?
    No. Only one partition can be "Active" at a time.

    In simple language, "Boot Loader" software changes the "Active" partition when you select the Operating System you want to start. So when you select "Suse" from the boot menu, the software marks the "Suse" partition "Active" so the computer can boot to it. Then after, if you now want to start Windows, the "Boot Loader" software marks the Windows System partition active so the computer can boot to Windows.

    If you have removed "Suse" and/or its "Boot Loader" and the "System Reserved" is not marked "Active", then as the warning message said: you do not have any "Active" partition to boot to. You must mark the "System Reserved" partition "Active" so Windows can boot.

    When you select a different partition and mark it as "Active", then the first partition is no longer the active one. There can only be one "Active" partition on a hard drive.

    Cheers!

    MBR


    Just found your website. A lifesaver, easyBCD really messed things up. Now realize that I don't need it to dual boot Win 7 and 8. Thanks again. Now going to check out the Windows 8 forum.

    iseeuu you saved my sanity.. I have been banging my head against a "TPM measurement is missing" issue for AGES and I restored my bootloader following your instructions and bam it worked.

    Either way it's working now so I suspect this was it.

    I also forced a BIOS update but I had not received any update prompts (Gigabyte) and I updated only a month or so ago (when I built the PC) so I doubt that was the issue.

    Although I DID select 'clear DMI data pool' at the same time, so maybe I can't be sure...
