Hello Experts,
I would like to know how to correct Apple's Bootcamp time error. When I boot into Windows XP, the time on the clock is correct. However, after I reboot my Mac and boot into Mac OS 10.6.X, the time on the Mac side is always 4 hours behind. How does one correct this problem? I Googled this problem, and I have not been able to find a solution that the common person will be able to understand, such as myself.

mac uses UTC, windows prefers setting hardware to local time

you can use virtualbox and run XP within OSX if you do not run heavy 3d games.

hey
setting windows tou use UTC hardware clock as described behind the link solves the problem with bootcamp, or on a common dual-boot PC

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by gheist (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26744494.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
