    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    Hibernation revisited Hello all. I know it's been a while, but I said I wouldn't let this thing pass by; that I'd try to reproduce the problem so we could report it to M$. Well, the fact is, I can't reproduce the problem. :S BUT... Could someone with this problem verify if the BitLocker...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    Those comments just gave me the courage that I needed to try and reproduce the problem. I'm not giving up. I already have so many backups that I'm not afraid to wreck my system. My backups are tested and working so I have nothing to lose right now :) I managed to get the USB floppy drive...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    Easy :) - right-click over the start button (bottom-left corner), choose properties; - go to Start Menu Tab; - In "privacy", DE-select both items (highlights of newly installed/used applications and files). This will immediately solve the problem. Newly installed programs will no longer be...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    I tried that a couple of times (in both driver integration modes: PnP and the other one) but the XP installer (boot from CD) just wouldn't recognize my HDD. So I used an USB floppy drive, since my BIOS supports USB floppy drives as legacy devices. That was TOSHIBA's recommendation anyway...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    My partitions are managed with Paragon Partition Manager, version 8.5, build 1473 (07.03.07 ) Professional. Vista Compatible, they say. And, as far as I know, true. I've always used it and never had problems. And trust me I've changed my partitions a couple of times through time BEFORE messing...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    OK, for the 3 posts above: - BitLocker is a feature available only in Vista Enterprise and Ultimate. - I have Vista Ultimate installed. - M$ speaks true, every DVD contains all the versions, it's the serial that determines which one is to be installed (if you provide no serial at the time you...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    I guess this is indirectly related to the BitLocker functionality. This means that not all Vista releases might be affected; only those with BitLocker available. The thing is, I don't know how to correct the situation. I can't post the full error message here, because it's not in English. I'll...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    Thanks for your concern. The thing that bothers me the most is that this issue is undocumented @ microsoft's KB. (a simple search for "volmgr" within "windows vista" returns 3 articles, if i can recall, and none of them is directly related to this particular behavior). Look, here's the System...

    Vista Hibernate not working after dual boot

    Yes. Original conditions: - Partition 1: Vista (NTFS) - Partition 2: personal files (NTFS) Procedure to install XP: Split Partition 1 in two: - Partition 1: Vista (NTFS) - Partition 2: empty (NTFS) - Partition 3: personal files (NTFS) At this point it's still possible to hibernate. Install...
