The rEFInd Boot Manager
rEFInd, my fork of the rEFIt boot manager for computers based on the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) and Unified EFI (UEFI). Like rEFIt, rEFInd is a boot manager, meaning that it presents a menu of options to the user when the computer first starts up, as shown below. rEFInd is not a boot loader, which is a program that loads an OS kernel and hands off control to it.

Windows / OS X Time Sync Fix by Zephyroth
Best way i think is to make Windows use the bios clock as a UTC one and not as a local time. Windows is the one making the mess of time on your system so fix it on that side.

Set RealTimeIsUniversal in Windows Registry.
