To be able to dual-boot with linux, make sure you set both systems to interpret hardware clock the same way. Recommendation is to set Windows to use UTC.

And there you configure settings.


On gpo editor, go to

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update
