Diskpart set id command not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to use "set id=84 override" to recreate a hidden hibernation partition. I select the disk, then partition then type set id=84 override but then I get a message stating "The specified type is not in the correct format."

    Per the Intel Rapid Start documentation this is the correct command. What can I do to correct this.

  • For GPT I believe it is:

    set id=D3BFE2DE-3DAF-11DF-BA40-E3A556D89593

  • Are you setting the ID on an existing partition, or creating a new partition?  Also note that for GPT, you have to use a different command.  In the past when I've run into that error (about correct format, not id=84 specifically), I've just added an additional step before with diskpart to "format fs=ntfs quick".  Make sure you've selected the right disk in diskpart first, naturally.

  • I already created the partition per the Dell Setup Guide for Intel Responsiveness Technologies Version .83. Do you know the correct format for GPT, to hide the partition from the system and assign the partition to the Intel Rapid Start (hidden Hibernation partition)

  • That did work to get the Intel Rapid start technology working but the partition is still showing in the Windows 8 Disk Management system. Is it possible to hide that partition from Disk Management?

  • If you want to see the drive to be labeled as "hibernation partition" in disk management you have to change from gpt to mbr mode. 

    When you type list disk in DISKPART prompt and see a star on the GPT column of your required disk then its in GPT mode. 

    To change that you need to follow these steps.

    First open cmd.exe and type in "disk part"

    At the DISKPART> prompt, type the following commands, in the order shown:

    DISKPART>list disk

    DISKPART>select disk X
    (X is the disk number where you want to create the store partition. Refer to results from “list disk” 
    for exact disk number. Disk must be an SSD)


    DISKPART>create partition primary size=8190

    DISKPART>detail disk

    DISKPART> select Volume Z
    (Z is Volume of your store partition. Refer to results from “detail disk” for exact volume number)
    DISKPART>set id=84 override
    (The id must be set to 84)

    Hope this helps. It me know if problem still persists

    I followed your steps,however, the finnal step set id84 override

    the diskpart always display like the format is incorrect,

    my Laptop is XPS 15 L521, I delected the 8G sleep partition when I divided the SSD to 4 partition,because i dont know what the 8G used for, now, I TRY many times, the 8G cannot get back to sleep partition(It still display 8G in manage)

    can you give me more help,thanks

  • Thank you for this. I think BCD still needs to be updated and a reboot done to affect where Windows cretes/reads hiberfil.sys

    I'm learning BCD the hard way and operating on intuition (having been fixing bootloaders since DOS 3.0), but I see "resumeobject" entries and what I think would be example counterparts at

    See point 3.7 "Winresume.exe loads memory dump from hiberfil.sys and transfers control to it." This is the LAST step so we should have lots of options in terms of addressing other drives/volumes/partitions/filenames.

    Here's my last gem. I can't quite get things workinhere here, but I'm confident this brings all the tools together, we just have to use them for our goal:

    After I've read this enough, I WILL figure it out, but someone who knows BCD better should have all they need here to tell the rest of us how to use PowerShell to modify BCD to add/edit a "Resume from Hibernate".device and/or path properties AND update the "Windows Boot Manager".resumeobject property. Then we do `powercfg /h off`, reboot and turn it back on. I expect to then see the hiberfil appear in the intended location. I'm also deficient in PowerShell which further slows me down.

    Who's going to be our hero and build a nice little PS script? :)
