What's the correct way to set the "USEPMTIMER" value with BCDEDIT (i.e. for Vista/Windows 7)? There's plenty of information around regarding setting it in boot.ini, but none that details how to set it using BCEDIT.

bcdedit /set {default} useplatformclock true
  • For the above answer and so as not to have to start a new thread, for Windows 7, what is typed in place of {default}? – user104782 Nov 9 '11 at 21:52
  • {default} is what I wanted to type. It is not a placeholder. More here: pastebin.com/9evnaAmC – user12459 Nov 30 '11 at 4:55
