Hybrid boot is a process that speeds up the normal startup in Windows 8 (apparently it makes booting faster than in previous versions of Windows)
The normal boot usually looks like this:
Pre-boot -> System Initialization -> User Session Initialization
The hybrid boot looks like this:
Pre-boot -> Hiberfile read -> Driver Initialization -> User Session Initialization
Windows 8 hybrid boot takes the concept of hibernating your computer to boot your system. When you hibernate, your system takes a snapshot of the System Initialization for that session to use when it wakes up. This creates a hiberfil with that session data saved which Windows 8 then uses to wake up from that hibernation.
I wish to disable Hybrid Boot in Windows 8 (as I have read it may cause problems such as the PC to hang at startup) even if the boot time is slightly increased (as it never really bothered me in Windows 7 etc) and would appreciate guidance on how to achieve this ?
