    HORM for dummies?

    I'm having som hibernation/resume problems, and was thinking that HORM might be the answer.

    My system has a single 2.5" HDD, with two partitions.
    Can i use HORM on the boot partition without making changes to the 2nd partition? Or do i need 2 drives?

    HORM will work fine regardless of your partition setup.

    What kind of hibernate/resume issues are you having?

    what problems are you having? yes, you can have multiple partitions. however, you need to unmount the other partitions when you hibernate so that the write cache is not saved with the hibernation state.
    EWF, HORM, MinLogon on XP.

    Ok, I thought that I needed some kind of write protection that would make my non-system partition useless.


    My system is set to hibernate on ignition off (+ power button & sleep button).
    But the system does a normal boot ~60% of the time, pretty random. There does not seem to be any connection to the off time of the car.

    Is there some where I can find an easy guide to HORM?

    The first thing that comes to mind is that your system isn't completing the hibernation process prior to your power supple cutting off power. But I don't know how your system is set up and exactly what it's doing.

    The PSU is set to 5 sec. to shotdown signal, 45 sec. to hard off.

    That should be enough unless your system is hanging for some reason.

    I get the screen power from ignition (my battery got drained). So I can't se if the problem is when it writes the hibernation file.

    I tried lookin into your link, it seems to me that i do infact need EWF to use HORM?
