    Ubuntu 18.04/win 7 windows is not authentic...clock?

    My question is, there is more than one way to correct the problem of clock off by 5 or 6 hours, what is the correct way to do this? I believe I took a shortcut, and now have problems with windows. "Your copy of Windows is not genuine."I think the problem is clock related???

    I had the same issue with a system dual booting Linux and Win7, see this thread.

    It is my observation that:

    I believe this problem arises due to the following:

    Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a specification for a software program that connects a computer's firmware to its operating system (OS)

    On machines with traditional BIOS I doubt this would be an occurrence.

    check it first, my ubuntu 18 is using local time. so you might just need to change your windows.
