Windows 7: Black screen after hibernate.

16 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
Black screen after hibernate.


I have bought the Windows 7 Ultimate x32 bit for my macbook pro and after a Start->Hibernate Windows does not reboot anymore, I just have a black screen.

The problem comes from the Start -> hibernante, I did not change any driver or did any update.

I can't get the safe mode F8 working and the same if I try booting on the Windows DVD I have the same black screen.

If I boot on my Mac OS X partition I can have an access to the Windows 7 files. Maybe I could delete or modify some files to be able to boot on Windows 7 normally, without the Hibernate process.

Thanks a million, I need my Windows 7 partition to work and to play

I have found a solution and I love back my computer.
Just delete the file hiberfil.sys which is under c:\ from the Mac OS X and that's all.

I am going to play at Spleet Seconds :-)
