You can set a registry key in windows that sets it to use universal time as well for the hardware clock, then you don't get that constant fight between them.

Sorry, I know it's OT[1], but could you tell how to set that?

I've always just used GMT as the timezone in Windows and turned off the
DST flag, but having a UTC HW clock and local time in Windows would be a
convenience.

[1] Maybe not, as it's relevant to dual booting...

I think its on topic as thats a very annoying issue to deal with while dualbooting which is supported. ;)

The registry string that does it is 'RealTimeIsUniversal' in the following. I keep this enter key in a .reg file and merge it all whenever I reinstall a machine. When it is merged in and the time set (I still let windows update time via ntp) the machine boots with the correct time in both OSes.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]

"Bias"=dword:000001e0

"StandardName"="@tzres.dll,-212"

"StandardBias"=dword:00000000

"StandardStart"=hex:00,00,0b,00,01,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

"DaylightName"="@tzres.dll,-211"

"DaylightBias"=dword:ffffffc4

"DaylightStart"=hex:00,00,03,00,02,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

"TimeZoneKeyName"="Pacific Standard Time"

"DynamicDaylightTimeDisabled"=dword:00000000

"ActiveTimeBias"=dword:000001e0

"RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001
