A newly-installed system will use UTC as the file does not exist by default.

Would it be clearer to replace use UTC with assume the real-time clock is set to UTC?

A newly installed system will assume the real-time clock is set to UTC, as the file does not exist by default.

Perhaps keeping the same language used earlier would be better.

A newly installed system will assume the hardware clock keeps UTC, as the file does not exist by default.

It will set it in UTC (if the file does not exist) so it's not just assuming it is UTC, though.

How about

On a newly installed system the hardware clock will keep UTC, as the file does not exist by default.

Or more concisely, On a newly installed system the hardware clock will keep UTC.

It will set it in UTC (if the file does not exist) so it's not just assuming it is UTC, though.

It makes sense now (after or IRC conversation). Thanks for clarifying.

Or more concisely, On a newly installed system the hardware clock will keep UTC.

Clear and concise. Grammarly tells me that a comma is needed before the main clause.

On a newly installed system, the hardware clock will keep UTC.
