Recently, I installed Debian on a separate section of my laptop’s hard drive, and I am experiencing some unusual and consistent unexpected behaviors.

  1. The first issue is that whenever I switch to the Windows partition after using Debian, the system clock is incorrect.
  2. The second problem is that the Wi-Fi on Windows becomes dysfunctional after using Debian, as I am utilizing the non-free iwlwifi drivers in Debian. However, I can resolve this by disabling and then re-enabling the wireless network adapter.

During the startup process, Debian displays error messages suggesting that it is encountering some difficulty in loading the network interface, although it always functions correctly on startup.

Although these issues are not particularly disruptive since there are straightforward solutions, such as synchronizing the system clock and resetting the network adapter, I am concerned that there may be a configuration issue that could lead to problems in the future, and I would prefer to address it now.
