Has anyone come across this error installing Longhorn & Whistler?? If so is there a way round it??

Thanks

"Error:
Setup has encountered an error (system time out of sync error code 800b0101

Please verify that your computer is using the correct date and time and re-run setup. This can be done by accessing the BIOS during system startup.

Fatal Error:

Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error."

Adjust the date to one shortly after the compile date.

Longhorn and XP have an expiration it checks your time against the compile time if they are more than 1 year apart then it won't let you install.

But then you have to keep your clock that way forever or until you remove Longhorn/Whistler because it checks on boot up it won't login if your time is past the compilation by more than a year.

That's why I would recommend using a Virtual PC like Microsoft VirtualPC 2007 then adding the time sync value.

You need to set your BIOS date/time to conform EXACTLY with the Longhorn compile date.

See here:

Thanks for the advice on my problem with Longhorn & Whistler.

I've tried adding the following to my Virtual PC .vmc file,

<host_time_sync>
<enabled>false</enabled>
</host_time_sync>

I then change the BIOS date on the Virtual Machine to the necessary dates, the problem I have is that it keeps reverting back to today's date and thus I still can't install Whistler or Longhorn.

Am I doing something wrong here or is there something else that needs adding to the .vmc file??

Shouldnt it be set to "true" not false?

No, I think "false" is correct because it applies to the fact of being enabled. He then sets the VM's date back. It seems he has done everything correctly...
