Windows 7: Can I recover my hibernation data? :(

You get the BIOS warning about Hibernation when a change has been made that alters the System. I don't think you have any realistic option except Resume. It wouldn't offer that choice if it wasn't still conceivable.

I rely on Hibernation a lot to walk away from a PC without concern, however I'd never do it during a repair or rebuild.

There's likely someone out there who knows how to retrieve Hiberfile data and reconstruct it. But I don't know how you'd find them. This guy at least had a handle on the complexity: Reviving Windows 7 from previous hibernation

Did you reconnect all USB devices to the same port as they were connected to in the old case ?
Keyboard, mouse, storage devices, printer/scanner, etc.

Are there any new or different front panel ports on the new case that are not on the old case.
Is everything on the front panel wired correctly (including polarity)?
