Hi
I have a computer with 2 HDD, one is with Windows XPSP2, the other with Linux Ubuntu 7.04 (hummm 7.06 ? not sure)
When I boot Linux, then later reboot with Windows, time is offset by 4 hours.

Look to me Ubuntu changes time in BIOS

How can I fix this ?

Thanks,

PL

Make sure your time zones are correct.

modify your time settings, probably a timezone mess up.

Both operating systems change the time of the hardware clock. The difference is that the one saves in the local time zone, the other one in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

Here
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime#head-7f2edfd2f352f7f015759cd8eb7652deb69088aa
is explained how to fix the problem for Windows or for Ubuntu, which ever one you prefer.
