System Time Unstable


I have a computer with removable hard disks. When I am done using Windows, I turn the computer off, remove the Windows HD, and insert the OpenSuse HD.

However, every time I load up with OpenSuse 10.2, the system time is always incorrect by many hours. So I always have to correct the time and possibly date in OpenSuse.

If I shut down the machine and load with Windows, the system time is just fine, every time.

Maybe one operating system is assuming that the system time is GMT and the other is assuming that it is local. Check the BIOS to see what the time zone is and then check both OS's to see what they think it is.

I looked into both OS and made the time adjustments so that they are using Central Standard Time (Chicago). I haven't yet looked into the BIOS. I will perform a swap of the drives tonight after work to see if each OS retained the correct time.

After making the correct settings in both OS, and swapping drives, the problem is now resolved. Thanx for the tip, Jailbait.
