In fact, Phoenix bioses can have hibernation-partition or
So I presume that shrinking the Windows partition modified the position
of the partition file, so the bios can't find it anymore.

You can use phdisk under DOS (no option or /? -> help page)
to (re)make an hibernation-file.

lphdisk works under Linux and creates hibernation-partitions.
It's less error-prone than phdisk (phdisk can write over another
partition, it happened to me : it maked its partition in the middle
of my (at this time empty) /usr/local partition.
