How to Create a Hibernation (Type 0x84) Partition with BootIt BM

The 0x84 file system ID is commonly used for hibernation partitions. Using BootIt BM, you can assign this ID to a partition and thereby enable the use of that partition by an operating system.

To assign the 0x84 file system ID, follow these steps:
  1. Run BootIt BM.

  2. Open the Work with Partitions window by clicking the Partition Work icon on the BootIt BM desktop.

  3. Access the File System text box:

    • If the hibernation partition already exists, double-click its entry, or select the entry and then click the Properties button. A Properties window will appear and will contain a File System text box/drop-down list.

    • If the hibernation partition does not exist, select the appropriate Free Space block and click the Create button. A Create window will appear and will contain a File System text box/drop-down list.

  4. Put the cursor in the File System text box and enter: 0x84

  5. Make any other changes desired (for example, if you are creating a partition, set the desired Size - MB value). Click OK when finished.
