Hi all,

I have a dal boot system and use acronis OS selector. But the problem is, my OS X and XP instalations do not show the same time. One is 5 hours ahead of the other. Everu time I change the time in OS 10 the BIOS time gets changed. This is messing up all my scheduled tasks and puts a wrong time stamp on all my outgoing email messages :)

Is there any way I can fix this?

Thanks in advance ;)

Tell OSX you live in GMT time zone.

Tell OSX you live in GMT time zone.


Depending on Daylight Savings Time settings, you may need to go one time zone west of there.

The reason for the disparity is that OS X sets the hardware clock to GMT, Windows assumes local time. Linux usually give you an option at installation which you want to use.

...or if you have constant internet connection, set in sysprefs --> date and time --> check set automatically

That's not the problem. You have to resync time in Windows, not OSX. The error is in Windows because OSX saves the time to the BIOS which Windows then reads as the GMT time.
