Many people know how to set time back in VirtualBox, using the method stickied above this post. This method can be very lengthy. So I spent some time looking in the internals of one of my machines in VirtualBox, and have figured out a way to completely disable Host Time Sync. You saw correctly. Completely Disabled. Here is the command to run in a CMD Prompt Window with the Current Directory set to "%programfiles%\Sun\xVM VirtualBox\":

Code:
vboxmanage setextradata "%vm%" "VBoxInternal/Devices/VMMDev/0/Config/GetHostTimeDisabled" "1"


Replace %vm% with the name of your machine. Or, you can download this batch file and place it in "%programfiles%\Sun\xVM VirtualBox\", run it, enter the VM name, and you are done.

How can you actually set the date in the first place, is there a kind of BIOS or something?

You can get an MS-DOS Boot Floppy, doesn't matter which version, and use the date command at the prompt. That's how I do it.
