    Yep-this is a known issue-Apple has been talking about it since the BootCamp beta came out.

    I still don't know of a fix-fortunately OS-X corrects the time pretty quickly on my computer. If you have a broadband Internet connection, you shouldn't even notice this.

    taken from here:

    its the onboard logging of the date/time structure, its comes out of a completely different state (Windows) when going into OSX

    Is there anyway to force OSX to check the internet for correct time? Mine eventually corrects, but often takes several hours. Is there a command in the terminal window I could type? I usually have an internet connection, if I could get my mac to automatically check all would be fine.

    If you open date and time then click the lock button to unlock, it should change back to the correct time.
