Win7 image timezone issue
I am running fog 1.2 and creating an image from a VM (vmware). Right now i have a vm with everything installed that i want, i take a snapshot after doing things like windows updates then i run sysprep it reboots and the schdeuled upload task for Fog runs to capture the image. Everything seems to be working well except when I push the image out to a system I see a message displayed when i open the “date & time” window which says “your current time zone is not recognized. Please select a valid time zone”. When i open command line and run tzutil /g it says my timezone is set to “pacific standard time”. In the unattend file in step 4 - specialize, i have “timezone” set to “Pacific Standard Time” and “DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet” set to “false”.
Any ideas why the time zone is not being set properly and what i can change to correct it? seems like it must be something with my unattend.xml file but i dont know what it could be. Let me know if you guys want me to post it for review.
thanks for the info guys. I ended up adding a command to setupcomplete.cmd and that seems to be working.
tzutil /s “applicable time zone”
Seems to be a known bug: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/6b5a6f2e-988e-4fe3-92bf-96d84b926d91/time-zone-issue-with-windows-server-2008-r2-and-sysprep?forum=windowsserver2008r2general

I am almost positive it’s your unattend.xml file.
Maybe double check your syntax, spelling, spacing, is it case sensitive? Do you need double quotes? single quotes?
I wouldn’t know because I don’t use sysprep… just kicking around ideas for you.
