    Before you mess things up:
    1. First check your BIOS boot section if it is looking for the correct drive respectively "Windows boot manager"
    2. Is the boot drive partition set to "active"? So the system knows on which drive to look for the boot information.
    3. What is the error message on the screen?

    Disc enumeration really doesn't matter if above 1) & 2) is correct.

    This is not applicable in this situation because the SSD in question is GPT partitioned which cannot have an active partition and must be booted in UEFI mode.

    Disagree. How would the system then know from all the SSD's and/or HDD's installed which one to look for boot information?
    There needs to be a "active" partition flag. Remove it and it does not boot.

    I take it these are just information seeking batches, since i'm so bad at describing my condition?

    You can disagree all you want to. It doesn't change facts. You cannot mark any partition as active on a GPT partitioned drive, it is impossible to do so.

    You may want to read up more on UEFI booting and GPT partitioned drives. UEFI determines bootable partitions by looking for specific folder structures and files, not by looking for an active partition, because there is no active attribute available to set for partitions on a GPT disk. The "active" tag that you are seeing in AEOMI partition wizard is only telling you which partition the computer booted from. It is not indicated the partition has an attribute for active set on it. Don't believe me, try setting one of the other partitions as active on that GPT disk.

    My computer boots from disk 0, partition 1 because it is a FAT32 partition that contains the proper folder structure and files for UEFI booting. It is not set as active because it can't be.

    I'm initiating batches with a measure of caution but deciding to trust. It does seem like the tuneup batch is for the current booted drive only. Is that really necessary?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Heres the Diskpart info
    The unbooting SSD drive is Disk 2. I currently have the boot drive (Disk 0) the old reformated 500G (Disk 1) and SSD (Disk 2) installed on this asus. And yes I was confused earlier about the MB that was intended for the SSD. That was an older Asrock. (Cant pull up the model at the moment but it must have been an UEFI capable bios since it was booting earlier just after cloning).

    ********************************

    Disk 0 : HDD. It has 3 partition(s). Model: ST1000DM003-1SB10C
    Disk 1 : HDD. It has 2 partition(s). Model: ST500DM002-1BD142
    Disk 2 : SSD. It has 5 partition(s). Model: CT1000MX500SSD1

    The script has found the above 3 storage device(s) in total.

    This is not applicable in this situation because the SSD in question is GPT partitioned which cannot have an active partition and must be booted in UEFI mode.
    Then please explain why a partition software reports it and it is the only one reported as "active" and when I set the flag to normal the system won't boot.

    Which drive was booted to run the commands?
    Which drive needs to become bootable?

    Disk 0 :ST1000DM003-1SB10C
    Disk 1 :ST500DM002-1BD142
    Disk 2 :CT1000MX500SSD1

    First scannow:
    Code:
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.

    Second scannow:
    Code:
    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    Disk 0 = MBR
    Disk 1 = GPT
    Disk 2 = GPT


    Please post an image of the current BIOS settings:
    UEFI native (without CSM)
    UEFI hybrid (with CSM)
    Legacy

    GPT partitioning has absolutely no capability to mark a partition as active. Period. It is not there. It is impossible.

    Take any disk, internal, external, USB, flash drive, SSD, NVME, whatever. Initialize it as GPT, create a partition on it. Then attempt to mark that partition as active. Nothing will actually mark the partition as active because it is impossible. Third party partitioning programs may assign an active label to a partition to indicate the computer booted from that partition, but that is entirely different than the active flag on a partition on an MBR drive.
