disabling Win10 'fast startup'

Post by clinthulk2 »

Hi,

After several years of not using BIBM, I had a PC die. I installed BIBM on another PC and added the dead PC's drive so I can switch between systems. It prompted me to disable Win10 'fast startup.' I read a bit about it, and it seems this only applies when you have your PC sleep or hibernate, which I do not do. Am I correct that I don't need to disable this in my case?

Thanks

Just turn it off to be sure, partition work, properties of the windows
partition, button to turn it off if enabled.

As I understand it, fast startup essentially turns some types of Shutdown into Hibernate.

It turns all shutdowns to hibernate.
