Hey hackintosher! i write this post for ya who have hackintosh PC that dual boot Mac OS X and Windows. If you come to this page then you must have problem with dual boot. And in this article or you can say my hackintosh journal I want to cover about how to syncing clock between OS X and windows.
As you know the clock format in Mac and Windows was different. I am not gonna explain to you what the technical stuff that cause it. You can ask google later, there is a lot of website/blog talking about it. Because I just want to show you how to easily syncing clock between these two OS.
You know if you run dual boot os on one machine and every time you log on from one to another have to change the clock to get the right time then you will get tired of it. So we need to sync the clock of these OS.
This is how you can make them you can say “run in harmony.”
To do so we going to tweak the windows system in this case we gonna tweak the registry. So if you now online on Max OS then its better to restart your computer and log on to windows.
Tweaking windows registry
Open Registry Editor by typing regedit on windows run command or you can simply type Registry Editor in windows search bar.
In Registry editor go to SYSTEM > CurentControSet > Control > TimeZoneInformation.
Add new Custom key in TimeZoneInformation, to do it just right click with your mouse New > DWORD (32-bit) Value and give it name RealTimeIsUniversal. Then double click on it change the value data from 0 to 1 see the picture below.
When you’ve done close Registry Editor and once again restart your Computer but this time log on to Mac OS and setting the clock and timezone.
One more time restart your computer and log on back to windows.
Tadaaaa! This time your clock have sync with Mac OS simple eh?
If you do it correctly then it must be works. This method also works for real Mac user who dual boot with windows using Boot Camp.
