    Clock skew after resume on virtual machine


    Hi, I'm a relatively experienced Windows user and have a Windows 10 system set up as a virtual machine guest on a Linux system host, and when the computer (and Windows 10 guest) resume from suspend, the clock is wrong and never resets automatically. It's necessary for me to right-click on the clock in the lower-right corner, and navigate to "Internet Time" where I can update it manually using "update now" on one of the time servers.

    The system is set to use time.windows.com, but it apparently doesn't sync frequently enough to update the time after it's resumed from suspend.

    I've checked to make sure the "Windows Time" service is running (it is, and set to Automatic at startup). I've also verified w32tm is configured to use time.windows.com (w32tm /query /source)

    I've also gone through steps in guides similar to this one:
    FULL FIX: Windows time service not running on Windows 10

    Is this something that other users using Win10 as a virtual machine experience? Should it be necessary to set up a task that executes upon the system resuming? Perhaps a task that just syncs the clock every few minutes?

    :)

    Installing a Virtual Machine in Windows 10

    Step #1 is to decide which virtual machine software you wish to install.

    The three most popular choices are:

    • VirtualBox (from Oracle)
    • VMWare Workstation Player (from VMWare); and
    • Hyper-V (from Microsoft)

    Once you've made your choice you can find detailed, illustrated instructions for installing each one on the internet.

    As a personal suggestion: You might find it easier to use either VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation Player. Hyper-V is more complicated to setup.

    Between VirtualBox and VMWare, I think you'll find VirtualBox more user-friendly, and it has the advantage of allowing you to create checkpoints - backups of your virtual machine - whereas to do that in VMWare you'll need to upgrade to their (expensive!)
    paid version.

    Clean install of W10 not possible in Virtual Machine.


    Please get a cup of coffee, lean back and think an answer for these two questions. Take your time, then check the answers below the questions:

    Questions:
    1. If you do a clean install of let's say Windows 10 Insider Build 10525 on a totally new computer which has never had an activated Windows 10 on it, does it activate?
    2. If you do a clean install of Windows 10 Insider Build on a computer where the underlying Windows 10, upgraded from a qualifying old operating system has already been activated, does it activate?

    Answers:
    1. No, of course not.
    2. Yes, of course.

    Why do you think that a virtual machine would make any difference? You have tried to install Windows 10 on a totally new machine which has never had an activated Windows 10 installed, therefore the Microsoft activation servers block the activation due invalid machine ID. In the highlighted part in below quote you admit your mistake yourself, plain and simple, yet you when doing this wrong draw conclusion that even if done correctly it would not work:

    What you have tried is essentially the same as if you took a brand new real physical PC without any operating system, which has never had any operating system, and then installed Windows 10 Insider Preview wondering why it does not activate! Virtual Machines behave exactly the same way; if you want to clean install Windows 10 Insider Preview and get it activated you must do it on an existing virtual machine, one which has already had an upgraded Windows 10 activated. This "computer", the virtual machine, its machine ID is marked on activation servers as valid and activated and it will of course activate.

    Be it a virtual machine or a physical computer, you cannot activate a clean installed Windows 10 Insider Preview on a totally new machine. How difficult can this be to understand?

    When clean installing Windows 10 Insider Preview on a computer which has already had a previous Windows 10 Insider activated, you do not use the product key! It will be asked twice, once before the installation starts and once after the last reboot to OOBE phase. In both cases you skip the product key and your Windows will be automatically activated.

    Clock skew after resume on virtual machine

    Virtual Machine on SurfaceBook2

    Hello,

    We are meeting hard time installing our soft - does not work on virtual machine - on Surface Book 2.

    Customer Surface runs Windows10Pro on virtual machine and the owner seems to know nothing about virtual machine. We do not understand!

    We know Surface Book comes with Win10S and could upgrade to Win10Pro.

    At that time, does upgrade create a virtual machine?

    Form where came this virtual machine? Really lost!

    we asked our customer for running CMD>Systeminfo | findstr /i mod yielding the following.

    System Model : Surface Book 2

    [01]: Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel 1910Mhz

    Best Regards



    ***Moved from Surface Book 2 / Install, update, and repair***
