Many a times we dual boot are PC with another OS alond with Windows like the Linux, OS X or a Hackintosh for better. These operating systems may work fine but many users have experienced that there clock resets itself to wrong time when they boot into Windows OS.

This problem of the clock setting to get reset to incorrect time happens due to the fact that OS X and Linux use GMT time while the Microsoft Windows use the Local Time Zone and that is why Windows is unable to put up the correct time thereby resetting the clock with incorrect time. In fact Apple has got the Boot Camp drivers for the Windows which are responsible for correcting this error but still many users are facing this problem and in addition to that Linux users can’t find a solution and those using Hackintosh are not able to install the Boot Camp drivers.

Well now you need not worry about this problem as in this article I am going to explain you how exactly with a simple tweak you can fix this issue.

1.Click Start->Type “regedit” in the search box->Open the registry editor by clicking on “regedit.exe”.

2.Find this registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation”


3. Open the key and right click ->Select new DWORD(32-bit)->Name it as “RealTimeIsUniversal”.

4. Open “RealTimeIsUniversal”->Set the Value “1”->Click OK.

5.Now Restart the system for the changes to take effect.

Now when you will reboot from the Hackintosh, OS X or Linux to Windows it should display the correct time.

NOTE: Always create a Backup Point before you perform any tweak on your system.
