Hello,

I've a dual boot win 8/ Mavericks working perfectly.

Whenever I boot to one of the OS's the on board clock changes to to a very weird time. I tried to sync it with the internet but it didn't work. When I boot up again the clock issue returns.

Please help.

Thank you

This sounds like an old well known issue where windows expects the BIOS time in local time and OSX/Linux expect it as UTC. There are a couple of solutions listed here:

While I haven't used the RealTimeIsUniversal Registry change on Windows 8, it has worked for me in the past on 7 and a quick Google suggests it might still work. Take a registry backup first.
