Windows Hibernate - Interesting feature

When i restored my gear with a new Intel DG41CN motherboard and Transcent 2GB DDR2, i found an interesting problem with my Windows 7 boot screen. My CMOS battery was screwed up in the brand new board, and upon system boot, it gave me a CMOS Battery failure, event log screen.

On my last usage 6 months, ago i had hibernated the system. Now, the time is reset to factory default 01/01/2009 00:00:00. When i tired to restore my system from hibernation, it gave me a checksum error and deleted that partition to start from first again.

My conclusion, Windows 7 (or may earlier) checks the hibernate page file with the system time, and last modification time, and only then boots. Have anyone else faced this problem (rather feature) of Windows 7?

Restored my Gear

Ha, A very gud and pleasant news after a long time. Feeling heaven in home, when my PC is back running after say almost 6 months (last working date - 19/09/2010) :)

Just wanted to share the word with all you people. I'll be resuming my iBlue and Blue Spider work very shortly. Watch this space for more info very soon.
