Anyway to correct this time thing? Resetting the time in XP won't hold after a reboot.

I have hat same problem on my Gateway PC and I can't get it fixed so if I get that problem on a PC then a Mac will have problems, but mine it 2 hours behind.

I have NEVER been able to connect to the Windows time server in all the years of having an XP PC... Mine's always wrong.

This is a known bug with boot camp right now. I found it somewhere on one of the FAQs that were released shortly after boot camp. I have found that if I tell it to update a couple if times manually, it does finally update and set the time correctly. You can of course just set the time manually... Smile

Ah, the joys of beta software... I am sure it will get better as time goes on....

Being new here I hope this isn't looked upon as spam, but some people on the Apple Boot Camp forum have recommended SocketWatch. It will automatically sync XP's clock when you log on. I hope Apple has this fixed by the time Leopard comes out. It's just one of those little annoyances that makes Boot Camp seem incomplete.

If you can't connect to a certain server it will happen, on my old Gateway Intel P4 1.4GHz (decent machine only had one fatal crash in 6 years witch needed a new HDD and then new RAM, but it was rambus so it was a pain) it would go for a week with the right time then change, but I fixed it with a download that uses a different server that is more reliable, but forgot it also it hapens in computers where XP wasn't preinstalled do to the fact that when it makes the first connection with the internet it find the right server and also dual partitioned HDDs can be a source of this problem, but I don't know how it would interfere unless it's two similar partitions (XP and ME or 98 works, but time is a pain in the ass).
