Time fix for dual booters OSX & XP - 10-27-2009, 01:48 AM
On a Hackintosh when switching between Leopard and Windows XP? There is always a 4 hour clock difference. Example: change the time in Windows, switch to Leopard, and there is a 4 hour difference. Now, change the time in Leopard, switch to XP and there is a 4 hour difference.
Its not a bug, its that windows and osx use two different ways of measuring time (UTC and something else, cant remember) . The same thing happens when dual-booting linux and windows unless you tell linux to do it differently. Windows uses local time for the clock as opposed to UTC
Ok enough chat here is how to fix it.
Create a reg file for windows and put this in it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
You will need to reboot windows for the change to take. This will work for Leopard and Snow Leopard also works for me on a Linux/XP box. Not sure about Vista or 7 dont use em so I cant say. But this works for my mini 9 with XP Pro / Snow Leopard
This was bugging that crap out of me hope that it helps someone else who dual boots.

Maybe not, this appears to cause a problem on Windows 7 which I would not have guessed to be related but is now affecting me:
