    "Active" is a term used by MBR partitioning schemes to indicate that a partition can be booted (but doesn't necessarily have to be).

    Your boot drive is using GPT partitioning where there is no concept of an "active" partition. There is no problem with this configuration.

    I once had a boot delay problem due the presence of an active partition a non-system disk drive. I just made that partition inactive using MiniTool Partition Wizard.
