It's not clear what you mean here...you say you want to generate E[y|x1,...,x50], but that would be the result from -predict- after running -reg y x1...x50-, not running the model you show. What would you want predict to do about the fact that there are 50 other terms in the model that you don't want in the prediction? There is generally no reason to think the predictions will have much to do with E[y]. If you just want an Xb prediction with only a subset of b, you could copy e(b) to a matrix, create a submatrix with only the terms you want (do you want the constant?), and then use matrix score to have Stata calculate the "prediction". reg y x1...x100 mat b=e(b) mat b=b[1,1..50] mat score mypredict=b mypredict will contain the prediction from the first 50 terms, but won't include the remain 50 xs or the constant (which Stata puts last).
