[SOLVED] Neither system or boot partitions labeled as primary or active: problem?

I clean installed Windows 10 pro to SSD. Showing three partitions:

EFI System Partition
Boot-Page File-Crash Dump-Basic Data Partition
Recovery Partition

None of these are Active or Primary, and Windows seems to be working fine. Is there a potential future problem here?

is there any other drive? did you have the other drive connected when you install windows?
Howdy, and thanks:

Yes, I used a Flashdrive for a clean install. I had one other drive connected and I see now that IT is listed as "primary." I was sure it wasn't before...

Thanks to both of you. What I'm hearing is that I've nothing to worry about. I really remember thinking that all of this was much easier: lol.
