    Windows 10 - 1607 Fast Startup question


    I already had hibernation disabled when update to 1607 (anniversary job) came today (and was flawless, in under an hour).
    I wanted to make sure fast startup continues to be off because dual boot with windows 7 didn't like fast startup.
    But after this update to 1607 both hibernation and fast startup are no longer on the power setting screen, such as is shown towards the end in Brink's tutorial

    Is that ok that both are missing? There is no new hiberfil file, so that's ok.
    How can I confirm that fast startup is really off? I'd rather not run Windows 7 until I'm sure.

    Open up a Command Window, enter Powercfg /hibernate off That will remove the Hibernate folder and shut it off, which also turns off Fast Boot. Fast Boot is basically a Hybrid start that you really do not need these days with the newer Hybrid Drives, faster Sata 3 SSD's. The 3D drives are even faster, along with the M.2.

    I take it from your replies that since hibernation was off, as I wrote in the first post, that fast startup has no chance, so I'm ok.
    Thank you.

    That's correct. If hibernation is off, Fast Startup will not be available. Please go ahead and mark the thread as solved. Cheers!
