I have a laptop which comes with a 20GB SSD hibernation partition, but I want to install Linux and use half of that SSD drive as a swap partition. In the case that it breaks, during installation, how would I recreate a new hibernation partition?
To create a hibernation Partition you can use This tool and follow this tutorials ! =)
The 0x84 file system ID is commonly used for hibernation partitions. Using BootIt BM, you can assign this ID to a partition and thereby enable the use of that partition by an operating system.
To assign the 0x84 file system ID, follow these steps:
Run BootIt BM.
Open the Work with Partitions window by clicking the Partition Work icon on the BootIt BM desktop.
Access the File System text box:
If the hibernation partition already exists, double-click its entry, or select the entry and then click the Properties button. A Properties window will appear and will contain a File System text box/drop-down list.
If the hibernation partition does not exist, select the appropriate Free Space block and click the Create button. A Create window will appear and will contain a File System text box/drop-down list.
Put the cursor in the File System text box and enter: 0x84
Make any other changes desired (for example, if you are creating a partition, set the desired Size - MB value). Click OK when finished.
First open cmd.exe and type in "
DISKPART> prompt, type the following commands:
DISKPART>list disk DISKPART>select disk X (X is the disk number where you want to create the store partition. Refer to results from “list disk” for exact disk number. Disk must be an SSD) DISKPART>detail disk DISKPART> select Volume Z (Z is Volume of your store partition. Refer to results from “detail disk” for exact volume number) DISKPART>set id=84 override
