Q: Help on installing a german copy of XP on an English XP machine...


I got a German version of XP in the hopes it would work with the serial key on the English machine..... This wasnt the case.

Its pretty frustrating as it was a mate who works for microsoft got me the copy, but didnt give me a key.

Its a volume copy and i cant even find a serial that would potentially work.

Gonna ask microsoft about it but dont think they'll be willing to give me any joy on this one.

Any thoughts?

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.)

Hello and thanks to the community in advance for the help!

I have the following situation. I bough a new PC (Acer), with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. As you can imagine is full of crap I dont need. This installation is in German.

I downloaded a new OEM copy, of the same OS, this time in English, and my question is, if it is possible to install the OS in English, with they that comes with the computer, that is, with the german version.

Thanks a lot in advance for your answers!

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 !

I would like to purchase and install another copy of Windows dedicated entirely to French. I know that I need an additional license, and my question is about how to install it and on which drive? I already have a dual boot Windows 7 and Xubuntu. Also, I am planning to transfer the current C: drive and the new OS drive to a 250GB SSD.

My current setup is a single 500MB Seagate SATA 3

C: current boot drive: drive 80GB
D: 50GB data
E: 60GB data
F: 60GB data
W: 90GB data
Ext4 25GB Xubuntu
Ext4 42GB data
Ext4 42 data
Swap 6GB

A:Installing a copy of French Windows 7 alongside the current English

You can install it on any drive or partition you want. It should be at least 60 GB.

Personally if you have room in your box for another drive, that`s what I would put it on.

Use a Solid State Drive, they are cheap

My mate has got a new netbook but has put German as the default language not english before the pc computeruser name and password.

I have been told that it cannot be altered we have to set it up in German leave the password blank then alter in the normal way but it will be all in German so might be a bit tricky.

Can it be altered before we progress any further or do we have to carry on and change it later if so what would be the quickest way to change the language.

At work, I was given a laptop to fix which has a German OS. It was infected with virus's and so I promply ran virus scans and general cleanup on the HDD. The system is currently performing well, besides that fact that it does not launch any programs. I assume that running a repair install of XP will most likely fix the issue without much more work on my part. However, I do not currently own a German copy of Windows XP, only English.

Thus, this brings me to the question:

Can I run a repair install of XP on a German OS with English XP CD without converting the original OS language to English or do I need to have a German copy of XP to run the repair?

Theoretically, I could just clone his HDD and attempt the repair on the cloned HDD and see what happens, but then that's just a buch of extra work. If someone already knew the answer, that would be great.

I will be upfront, I do not know the answer to your question, but there are others here who might. My advice is to call MS, they would have the definitive answer. In addition, they have the authority to give you little extras for little or no cost. Give them a call. With the economy in shambles, major compaines need good will.

Heya Guys

How are you doing? We are setting up a Vista Business Client for our Company. It is a test-station. We bought (deliberately) the operating system in english. Now my question:

I can't find files or patches to change the language in the Internet Explorer 7 from english to german... is ist possible to change the language at all?

Thanks for your help!

A:Change Language form english to german

If IE7 is like IE6, the answer is you cannot, just for this one application.

The only language related options is via:

Control Panel, Regional and Language Options icon

And you have to download the optional languages you want supported.

I bought the german version of the Libretto w100 (10D) to get a 3G-sim slot. Despite what the seller told me, it is not possible to switch from german to english interface. I have since bought an upgrade (Windows Anytime) from Win7 Home to Win 7 Ultimate, to get additional language support. I now got english in (most) system menues, but the Toshiba specific applications still use german, even though I have removed/reinstalled and choosen english language during the installation process. Any suggestions on how to solve this?

And no, I don't understand german language...

/ Anfanglir

A:Libretto W100 - Switching language from German to English

This being the european forum, I doubt you will find the answer here. Any drivers you download from here will probably be in german, since it automatically recognizes that you are in Germany.

Go to the american support forum:

Libretto is at the bottom of the page, ask if someone can download the english drivers and share them over megaupload or something.

Hope this helps.

I am running an english Win8 with german keyboard (and german regional settings).

That works fine except one thing: When I start Win 8 then always the English keyboard layout is enabled in the Login Screen by default.
I always have to switch in manually in the lower right corner.
When I proceed the keyboard in Desktop is switched corrently!

How can I tell an english Win8 to start AUTOMATICALLY with german keyboard layout already in the Welcome screen?

When I go to

Control Panel--->Clock, Language and Regio-->Language

then the
- topmost entry is English (Windows display language: Enabled; Keyboard Layout: German)
- the second second German (activated: Date, time and number fomatting; Keyboard Layout: German)

As you can I: Although I assigned a german Keyboard layout to the english Win8 entry the WinOS starts with english keyboard layout.

Because users sometimes use characters "z" and "y" (which are switched in the language layouts)
in their password and they mistype it when they do not pay attention to the keyboard indicator.

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if the German editions of Smart Security, NOD32 and Multi-Device Security include English language options? or if the licence keys will activate installations (within the EU) using an English language installer?


A:ESET 2015 German editions English language option?

I've tried on my VM to install one of the offline installer of ESET on other languages.

So specifically you need to choose an appropriate language before you install cause there's no already an option to change unless use Live Installer.


License key will work at any multi language part of ESET, so if you purchase it on EU then it should be valid since its a language you are choosing though,

That's quite possible.  Some websites automatically detect your language settings and adapt to suit.  Where is your VPN terminating?  Does the same thing happen when you visit the site without activating the VPN?

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

First, let me start by saying Hello to all, and by saying this is an awesome website. I browsed a lot of the forums, and searched for my problem (unsuccessfully), and I have to say that so far I am impressed with the people on here. A lot of forums, help or otherwise have a lot of flamers/spammers/annoying disgruntled people, and I do not like using them for that reason. I have found none of this so far, and it is refreshing to say the least, but I digress.....

I do not know if I am the right forum for my problem or not, but I am pretty sure this is some kind of Malware issue . I am hoping that someone here knows the answer to this problem and can help me fix it. When I go to Yahoo.com, half of the Yahoo! website is in German (all the adds, not the news and such), with the other being in English. Also, when I search Google I get German results. This happens in IE7 and with Firefox. I have ran a full scan with AVG antivirus, Spybot S & D and Ad-Aware. Nothing turns up with those. I also dowload Kapersky and ran it (after uninstalling AVG) and nothing came up with it. I have "reset" both browsers and cleared everything (cookies, etc). Also, I have checked all my account settings in Google and Yahoo! and made sure they have English as my preferred language. Google started showing English results after that, but Yahoo! continues with German ads. I have also ran a whois search on my IP and it shows my provider info.

A:run XP in both chinese and english on the same machine

Yes - you can switch between languages. For example, you can install an English version of XP along with Chinese language support files (if you wish) and vice-versa. However, when talking system menus/dialogs, the language displayed will depend on the version of XP. Eg. - Chinese version of XP, menus display in Chinese; the reverse is also true.

Cause I have a pc with Windows 7 Chinese OS preinstalled but hoping that I won't have to delete that OS and instead install an English version of Windows 7,I was hoping to dual boot it,is it possible and if it is can you help me on step by step on how to do it? many thanks

A:Installing Windows 7 english

Yes, it's easy.

Just make a partition for your new install.

Boot the install dvd - foolow instructions and point the installer at your new partition.

The only issue you may have - as that is an oem machine - you probably have 4 partitions already on there.

If you post a screenshot of Disk Management window - someone will show you how to get rid of the annoying 100mb partition ( assuming you have one ).

And if I do do I need to make a reboot disk?.And lastly if the answer is yes to the last two questions how do I do it??!!


A:installing english xp on a french xp pc

Hi soapy

You will need to reformat unless there is a large enough unpartitioned space on HD and you want to keep the french version. Since the default on install is the whole drive, I doubt this would be the case. A clean install is the best option and is not very difficult. Remember that doing this will wipe the HD clean so if there is anything important on the drive you will need to save it, and make sure it would work with english version. Just follow the steps Here under Perform a clean install of Windows XP.

PS: you can remove it by installing EN Enlgish (United States) and deleting it, but it will come back anyway next time you restart your computer or use the alt+shift shortcut.

It needs to be able to be copied to the destination machine from the Win2k Recovery Console. The only thing that I can think of is to share the sys32 folder and use a machine with a burner to put it on a cd. I want to avoid this if I can.

Does anyone know any way to do this?

Hey Tim,

What OS are you using? If it's NT or 2k, why not just install it and set it up the same way you're other server is set up?
Too, is it a domain controller or a file server? If it's domain controller, set it up as a backup domain controller, and copy all files from computer A to computer B, then if/when your server A dies, you still got your backup.
If it's a file server, set it up as the other one is, then either move the hdd's (hot swappable) or copy your data

A:help trying to connect this copy machine??

You have to be more specific:

Is there a possibility of building a network with a router and ethernet cables or does it exist already?
What copy machine is this? USB - Connections, Ethernet-Connections?
You could attach it to the network, then it appears like a standalone device
There's another possibility to attach it to one of the 3 PCs, but in this case you'd have to leave this computer always on in order to print through one of the 2 single systems
Unlikely but possible you might have WiFi capabilities on your copy machine which makes a wireless connection possible

Hi all, I have a small office that needs to be brought a little closer to the modern world. I have approx. 10 machines (All Pentium 2 or 3) . Anyways I want to now make it so that all the the computers or a select few print to my main copy machine. I have a Ricoh 1018D its a older version but I noticed it has the opening for the RJ45. My computers have all been networked by me im not networking savy person I just follow good instructions.

Thats leads to my question.

I want to know how and what is needed to accomplish my goal of wirelessly networking the copier.

My idea is that I would change the current router to a wireless one and from there hook up the copier to that as you would do other printers.
