    Hibernation does not work after migration to new HDD


    Hi,
    I have used Pragon HDM 14 to migrate existing Win 8.1 installation (gpt with uefi and secure boot) to new hdd. Migration went ok, system booted up from new hdd. However after that it seems hibernation does not work. When I hibernate and power on back pc, it does a clean start. System event log says the system has shut down inapriopertly. I have tried to turn off and on hibernation, disable safe boot, nothing helped.

    Give sfc /scannow a try and DISM restore health if necessary. SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    sfc gave no errors.

    I have discovered that diskpart says:
    Hibernation File Disk: No
    Crashdump Disk : No
    I managed to make this
    Hibernation File Disk: No
    Crashdump Disk : Yes
    via changing some location paths, but hibernation file disk is still 'no'.

    Maybe this will help. Did you enable fast startup in power options?

    I have finally managed to solve this. I have even tried to rebuild bcd. Simple uninstalling TrueCrypt (which was only installed, not used for any disk) helped Windows 7 Migration Led To Crashdump And Hibernate Problems | Click & Find Answer !
