    HORM without EWF

    I found the following solution to enable HORM without EWF:

    I used the files extracted from "XPeSP2FeaturePack2007.iso" downloaded by MS site.

    1. replace the original ntldr with renamed ewfntldr using recovery console on xp CD and restart
    2. copy ewfapi.dll, ewfdll.dll, ewfmgr.exe in system32 dir
    3. copy ewf.sys in system32\drivers dir
    4. copy horm.dat in root dir (same as ntldr), c:\
    5. add to the registry the ewf informations using a .reg file (ones indicated by sfiorito here:
    6. enable hibernation support on the system if not yet
    7. restart and use command prompt as following:

    Microsoft Windows XP [Versione 5.1.2600]
    (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ewfmgr
    RAM (REG) Configuration
    Device Name "\Device\HarddiskVolume1" [C:]
    HORM Active

    If you see "HORM active" now you can try to hibernate and resume as many times you want by the same hiberfile.sys

    EWF protection is still disabled till you don't enable it using ewfmgr.exe

    I did everything exactly as it is described above but when I hibernate my PC it resumes only once. Then if I shut it down again it will start normally, but it should resume from the hibernation file. Could anyone help me ?

    That seems a bit long winded it you just want HORM

    my understanding is just put resmany.dat onto root of c:

    then simply hibernate

    then it will use that same image everytime until you delete it, or press f8 during boot and select delete restore data.

    I also tried to put resmany.dat in the root of my hard disk, but it doesn't help either.
    As far as I know horm.dat replaced resmany.dat in the latest edition of XPe.
    Has anyone managed to enable HORM without EWF and could verify steps described in the first post of this thread ?

    it's horm.dat with the newer files from XPe FP 2007. you must have EWF enabled for HORM to work.
    EWF, HORM, MinLogon on XP.
