    I have install Windows 7 in my MacBook.
    But I having few problems.

    1. Everytime when I switch from 1 OS to another OS, the date time changed.
    For example, I set the MacOS date time to 09/June/2009 14:00. If I go to Windows 7 and restart back to MacOS, the date time changed to 09/June/2009 06:00. Same thing happened for the Windows 7.
    I have set the Time Zone to Kuala Lumpur for both OS, but still having same problem.

    2. After install Windows 7, a new shortcut created in MacOS desktop which is name "Untitled". This is the Windows 7 partition. Can I change the name to "Windows 7"??

    3. Eject button is not working in Windows 7 even I have install the Apple Keyboard.

    4. Cannot use right-click on TrackPad even I have install the drivers.

    I really hope to solve this problem ASAP as I might take this laptop with me to India for biz trip soon.

    Thank You.

    Why are you worrying about the date?
    Not important
    Yes you can name it Windows 7
    Windows does not have such a button you'll have to do it manually
    I dont know wat Trackpad is, so cant answer that one
    hope it helps

    The date & time is quite important for me cause I will need to know few countries date & time as I have to support those countries users.
    And also all my files I will need to have the exact date & time so that I know when the files has modified.

    For the name change from "Untitled" to "Windows 7". I can't change it from "Get Info", it has been disabled. So where can I change this? This actually not that important but I just hope to know where and how to do this.

    Anyway really appreciate your reply.

    Thank You and hope to get more replies. :)

    Can't help you there. Just make sure that you have wireless or some internet whilst in India and you can have the time sync via internet.

    Just change the name in windows (with C: changing by right clicking and then rename)
