Hybrid Boot

Definition - What does Hybrid Boot mean?

Hybrid Boot is a Windows 8 operating system (OS) technology that enables faster system booting. It provides a computer or device with a booting time of less than 30 to 70 percent than Windows 7 and earlier versions.

Techopedia explains Hybrid Boot

The Hybrid Boot method works on the principles of system hibernation. When a user sends a shutdown request, all logged user sessions are closed, but the kernel session is hibernated. The current state of system and memory objects are stored as a hibernate operation specific file. Thus, when the system is booted from a cold state, a user session is initiated. However, the kernel session is restored from the hibernate file, gradually reducing system start time.

Hybrid Boot may be applied to typical hard drives and solid state drives (SSD).
