I have an interesting dilemma, at the moment I am trying to deliberately
set a different date in my guest os to that of my host os.
My host is Windows 7 (x64), my guest is XP (SP3), and my virtualization software is VMware Workstation (7).
In an attempt to set this up I have done the following -
1). Added a line to the VMX file
2). Booted into and modified the BIOS settings of the guest XP os (setting the date back in time to the 08/08/2008) -
3). Disabled the guest XP os internet time synchronization settings -
When I first boot into the XP guest I see the following date -
However after about 2 - 5 seconds the date is restored to that on the Host -
If anybody knows how to set a different guest os date / time can you please share your method with me?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
