Preferred Solution: Win 8 english version install with french version cd key

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there

I bought a new Laptop here in Germany which comes, as you would expect, with a German version of Windows. I would prefer an English version though. It appears I'd have to update to Win Ultimate or Enterprise to be able to change the language which is quite expensive. However, I don't need the ability to change languages, I just want English.

So, I still have an unused English Win 7 license. Is there any way to convert my system from German to English using that license and keeping all the software that is already installed on my Computer?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!

A:Possible to install English version over German version of Win 7?

You can call MS Customer Service to find this out for sure.

I think I'd shrink C in Disk Mgmt to install to a test partition to see if English will activate with your Product Key, as this can vary. If so then we can help you remove the old OS or hide it if ever needed again.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend

Put your wireless adapter on a stick so you can get online to try activating. If not just delete the test partition in Disk Mgmt and extend C back over it.

Remember you can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and unlimited Logical. If in doubt post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

My cousin asked me to help her with a computer problem. She has been given a note book, with french xp home os. She wants it in english.
I know that you cannot upgrade to an english version and you cannot download a MUI file because its xp home and not professional.

She has an external dvd rom drive attached by usb. I have xp professional english version and was hoping to install it for her.

I booted the notebook from the cd rom and every thing was going well, all the os files where loading, but when it came to agreeing to the license, I had to press F8 to agree, but when I pressed F8 nothing happens, but when you press ESC to disagree and reboot, that works fine. I tried three time thinking it was the usb connection, but the F8 button would not function. I pressed every button incase the french keyboard layout is different.

It is a DELL notebook is there anychance that Dell have put a block to stop someone installing another OS.

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

My new computer was given to me with Windows 7 Professional German version installed. I just want to overwrite it with my English Home Premium edition but do I need to format the drive first or remove the existing version? When I try to install it says the drive doesn't have enough space (because of the existing OS).

A:Help installing English version over German version

Two thoughts. The first is why don't you just try changing the language settings on your existing installation ?  As I remember, if you use a Windows repair disc the first thing you are asked is to choose your language and keyboard. You can get full instructions on how to create a Windows repair disc here :
No guarrantees it will work, but if it does it saves you a lot of work !
I have Win 7 Home Premium and the complete Windows folder is 27 Gb. This is quite a lot, but I am surprised that you are being told you don't have room to install it. I would expect any new laptop to have at least a 250 GB hard drive. But if you are determined to put Win 7 HP on your laptop, I think you are going to have to remove the Pro version first. Just back up any data you have on the computer before you start !

Hi, newbie and non-techie, please be gentle! Posted in Tutorial section about changing key code, but not sure if it's the right place so will copy here too.
I am buying a new PC in Spain but want Windows 7 Home Premium in English, which does not seem to be available anywhere here. So my techie guy is downloading an English version (pirate???) and at same time buying a genuine Spanish version. He says he will then use the key code from the Spanish pack to validate the English version.
Is this possible, and could I encounter any problems later? How can I be 100% sure (before I leave the shop!) that I have a validated, genuine English version of Windows 7 that will continue to work indefinitely?

A:Activate English version with Spanish version key?

I have read that the keys are language-version-specific. Others may know for sure.

Here is how to doublecheck validation before leaving the shop. Ask for the Spanish pack key insert. Run Attachment 39526 and scroll down to see the installed keys on machine: compare audit's Windows 7 key to the key your shop provided given on package insert.

Now go to Start>right click Computer>Properties and scroll down to confirm Windows is activated.

Be sure to keep the Spanish package key insert with the paperwork from your shop. Ask for a DVD copy of the Windows 7 installer to use for reinstalls or repairs.

Issue since moving from IE9 to IE11 in the office

I've changed the Language Preference on IE11 to add both of them, English by default
Microsoft Office is already set to use both language

Although using Internet Explorer, we are having an issue where it only seem to spell check one language, giving errors when typing words in the other language.

Read on the internet some people that added both language in the keyboard layout, but that's not an interesting solution because first the French keyboard layout does all the English keys and second people tend to accidentaly switch language while typing
using shortcut or whatever

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated

I'm trying to do an automatic installation of Windows 7, I've captured  the Windows image and I wanted to create an unattended file using the Windows System Image Manager. But if i try to load the image, I receive the following error:

This application requires version 6.3.9600.16384 of the Windows ADK. Install this version to correct the problem

After acquiring the image I did the driver injection through Dism GUI, I imported the image through Windows System Image Manager to create the answer file, and everything was OK. However, I had to edit the image again to add a folder and two files that would
have been useful to launch a post installation script. I used DISM GUI again. Once I saved the image I tried to import it again with the Windows System Image Manager, but in fact I receive the error mentioned above.

Now I did not understand what I did by saving the wim file last time, because before it was possible to read it and after the last modification no.

In a Laptop I have version 6.3.9600.17029 of AIK and on a Workstation is present the version is 6.1.7600. 16385 but in both cases the error I receive is always the same ....

If I buy a full Vista disk, can I UPGRADE from my current XP SP2 system (keeping my applications) with it? Or, do I have to do a clean install and reload all of my applications?

This http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/buyorupgrade/upgradepaths.mspx is not totally clear, but it looks like you do not have the option to UPGRADE from the clean install version.

I am aware I can use dual-boot with the clean install version, but does that mean I have to re-install applications in the Vista partition

Summary: Can I UPGRADE from the clean install disk?

One other question:

I understand Vista's backup/restore is different and perhaps not too flexible. I have had great success with MS's NTBACKUP program. Can I use it with Vista?

A:Ugrade Version or Clean Install Version?

with full..you can upgrade and keep favorites/settings/email...etc

i have ultimate full...let me check here
stupid box is almost impossible to open sometimes, you have to hold it just right to open easy **frustrated**

for antivirus..update it then disable it before you upgrade
ok it also says for upgrade you can keep your current settings/programs, user accounts,files
however it does recommend to backup files n stuff to disc before you install

you can dual boot..i dont know if you have to reinstall apps in vista, i assume you can use transfer tool to do that

with upgrade edition..you must have an activated valid XP installed first
with full edition....well its obvious

i kinda doubt you could use NT backup but who knows, give it a shot

I need to know if I can use a clean install disk for Windows 7 Ultimate to upgrade from Vista or if I have to use an Upgrade version?

I'm leaning towards buying the clean install disk so that if I should loose the hard drive at some future point I could just clean install Win 7 Ultimate from the disk without having to first install Vista and then upgrade.

Regardless of which type I purchase, am I better off to buy the OEM disk from the machine manufacturer (Toshiba) or just purchase any OEM disk?

Of course, if I want Microsoft support then I need to purchase retail disks.

Thank you.

A:Upgrade version vs clean install version

I suggest the much cheaper upgrade DVD. It will do a clean install, if there is an underlying supporting version of Windows

MS has changed the rules for OEM, they are not for personal use, even if builidng your own computer.

I upgraded my pc and bought Windows Vista ultimate 64bit, and i would like to install Windows vista Business 64bit.

How can i do it ?

I took ultimate because it was the only version i could find (in my area anyway) that had a 64bit version in the box.
But i don't want the media center, the high definition, and all the multimedia stuff. All of these ultimate "extras" are of no use whatsover to me.

So my question is basically can i install the Business version with my ultimate key ? (is it "downwards" compatible in a way ?).

I don't understand why ultimate is the only one with 64bit in the box. It doesn't make sense to me. It would have been much more logical for the Business version to be the one with 64bit in the box.

A:Install Business version with Ultimate version dvd

You can try this (but I don't know if it will work):
1. Preform a clean installation but DO NOT enter the key when prompted.
2. When asked which version to install, select Business. This will install the Business version in trail mode.
3. Now the I don't know part: Once you are up and running, go and try to activate your copy using the Ultimate key. I suspect this will fail but I have never tried it.

On the other hand, did you try installing Ultimate and then remove features once installed.

In Facebook the settings have altered so I cannot access the title part of frames to click on or the bottom of friends list to see the content,

Also the pages in general have this stupid advertising called Discovery that keeps coming up across the bottom of page

Also there is advertising that keeps coming up over the images of items for sale, this is adverting similar items
Can you please advise how best to get rid of this unwanted advertising and correct other issues please.
Thank you
