Re: System time incorrect
This sounds to me like the "BIOS clock set to UTC" issue.
If you look at /etc/default/rcS, do you see the following?
That's recommended when you're running Linux only, but causes problems if you're using Windows as well. Windows assumes that the BIOS clock is set to local time.
# assume that the BIOS clock is set to UTC time (recommended)
Edit /etc/default/rcS and replace the "yes" with "no". You'll need to do this as root.
You may need to reboot before resetting the time.
Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.
