Hybrid Boot in Windows 7 - is it possible?

Hi, and I'm back after several years of hibernation (I know, bad pun. ehehehe)

Well, we all know how nifty Hybrid Boot is, logging off and hibernating the system files and all for a quick boot. Now here is the question, is it possible to add Hybrid Boot to Windows 7? Of course I did some googling, and I found none so far.

Copying shutdown.exe from 8 to 7 sounds absurd but that's all that comes to mind

Anyone? Someone?

A batch file can be made for this sequence but it's terminated after logoff.

Simple answer...No. You may enjoy a read on what the differences are. It's coded into the kernal, and not something that can be "run" on Windows 7.

Hi.

I see.. If that's how it really goes then I'm sticking out with 7's hibernation. Thanks

That seems to be a task to make 7 hibernate? Correct me if I am wrong. He doesn't go into much detail. The Windows 8 hybrid boot is much more, but this may help the OP

It just hibernates after you logoff. Everything loaded when you are in log off screen will be hibernated.

No it not the same like windows 8 but it is like part of it. Note that you actually replaces logoff.

If you use this rename the .txt extension to .zip because he made this wrong.

I upgraded to 8 about a month ago. Still, this may come in handy someday
