    I currently have a similar setup where I have the OS on the EWF/HORM partition and my FE(Road Runner)/Winamp on the other.

    The new carPC is still being bench tested, so I haven't fully enabled/tested EWF/HORM and hibernate/resume w/ my FE yet.

    After much research, I did it this way to have a stable hib file and so my FE can pick up where it left off, which is read from an ini file that is updated when hibernating. I didn't read/find anything about "unmounting" a partition prior to creating the hib file when using EWF/HORM on another partition.

    Could you please explain this? I would greatly appreciate it.

    yes, you need EWF in order for HORM to work.

    See my site for instructions for both.

    I found a problem yesterday that sounds just like that. I use a dinovo mini keyboard. I normally keep it paired with the internal bluetooth so I can keep the dinovo dongle free for my HTPC when needed (2 dinovo's, one dongle). However, I wanted to test it out by using the dinovo dongle kept in. It was plugged into a d-link powered 7 port usb hub. I kept noticing that it would go into hibernation fine, but when I would start up, it would be a cold boot.

    Found that after it went into hibernation, something with the dongle would wake it back up (probably legacy USB support that I leave on for emergencies). After it came out of hibernation, then it would shutdown cold. Removed the dongle, and everything was yipee skippy again.
    My opinion is my own.
