    Hi there,

    I installed easybcd since i've been having problems with hibernation, and it seems related to my hidden partition (i have to assign a drive letter to the hidden partition in order to be able to hibernate). I was hoping easybcd could help me out with that, but when i open it, i get the error message: "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The system cannot find the file specified."

    I'm sure that if I assign a drive letter to my hidden partition, all will be well. But, it really sucks to have to do that all the time. Do you have any tips for how I might solve this problem?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    You can use EasyBCD to convert your Windows partition to the boot partition, throwing the hidden partition out of the mix entirely.

    Assign the hidden partition a letter, run EasyBCD, go to "BCD Install/Repair" and select "Change Boot Drive" and select your Windows partition from the drop-down list.
