Answer

Set the Startup.exe to launch a warm boot executable on a cold boot, which will preserve the time zone registry setting.
  1.     Create an executable file that will warm boot the device.
  2.     Use the startup.exe by creating a registry file that launches the warm boot executable.
  3.     It is important to have the "Continue"=dword:1 and the "ColdBootOnly"=dword:1 so that the warm boot executable only runs once on a cold boot or the device will continually be in a rebooting loop.
