this is more than likely to be a problem with the BIOS.  Are you using
anything like LBA (I think this is more DOS/Windoze fix though), is the
hibernate partition the correct size (however I think lphdisk will tell
you, have you tried using the DOS phdisk instead?).

those are my first thoughts......

if that doesn't help try seeing if there are similar reports in the
newsgroups/web about windoze users problems with a similar setup.

good luck
