Thanks. The lack of 'localtime' support may be the problem. The Win
registry tweak isn't quite an actual fix:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
It would seem that there are still some issues with this:
It seems to work most of the "time" for me but 1 or twice a day the clock
changes to the timezone offset again. I just have to do a w32tm /resync
/nowait to fix it.
So without an option for "localtime" in rc.conf, it will effectively
prevent a real dual-boot solution. Not a big impact, but strange that
localtime isn't fully supported.
