lphdisk can create such a partition for you (or the tool coming on the
HP CD deleting the entire drive).

I have made the experience that hibernation stops to work when GRUB was
installed into the bootsector. When installing it into the MBR all
things are fine and Fn+F12 suspends to disk. (I have heard reports
about a Dell Inspiron 4000, where the opposite situation is the case)

If you have installed the bootloader on hdaX already, you can try to
overwrite the first 512 byte with \0 (yes; it's a dangerous operation).
