Is there any way to use Windows 8 with time in UTC in BIOS? I know there is a way to do it in Windows 7 (in this question: Does Windows 7 support UTC as BIOS time?), but this solution makes my system unbootable.
Windows expects the bios clock to be set to local time by default. In Windows 7 and before, there was a registry hack to change this behavior so that it could expect UTC – is there an equivalent in Windows 8?

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
Yes. Just follow these steps:
Navigate to the following key:
Right-click in the white area and select
New --> DWORD (32-bit Value)
Name the key
Double-click on it and set its value to 1.
@Zuck’s answer is fine, but much quicker via the Command Line Interface (CLI).
cmd as Administrator then run:
reg ADD HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation /t REG_DWORD /v RealTimeIsUniversal /d 1
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
