    Is the EFI (new BIOS) clock changing accordingly?

    The opposite happens with me. OSX is fine, but when I boot into Windows, the win clock is way off (it's 12:46, win says it's 5:46). Dunno what's going on, but I gave up worrying about Windows time.

    Jim Robertson asks about the time difference (off by seven hours) under XP. This is documented on page 17 of the Apple Boot Camp Beta Installation and Setup Guide, and is due to the different way XP and OS X store internal date and time information.

    Apple suggest synchronising the time to a network time server -- a feature available in Date & Time Control Panel (XP) and Date and Time System Preference pane (OS X).

    On my MacBook Pro XP, this occurs automatically when I connect to the internet.
