I did a hibernate last time and now I got into boot loop in my laptop. I see the bios screen and it restarts again. I want to know if I can get into command line using a bootable windows setup and delete the hibersys file and get into normal Windows boot.

It doesn't really sound like a hibernation issue, but if you have a Windows 7 install DVD you can boot to it and get to a command line. – Harry Johnston May 29 '13 at 4:54

I haven't tried this with Windows 7, but in earlier versions (Windows XP) pressing F8 allows the resume process to be interrupted and gives the option to delete the hibernation image.

A hard reboot during resume should also work (it makes Windows think the boot or resume failed).

I cant see the Windows logo itself. it restarts right after config bios screen. – emaillenin May 11 '13 at 11:21

You can press the Space key to skip hibernation. For an unknwn reason on my old laptop, I got the old XP style resume progressbar on Win7 and there it was written that Space key should skip it. So try it out.
