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

Preferred Solution: Installing Windows 7 english

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.)

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 ).

I just bought a Notebook PC in Japan and it came with Japanese Windows XP Home Edition. I would like to install English Windows XP on the PC. I don't need the Japanese version.

I have 2 English Windows XP CDs: Home upgrade and Home OEM.

How can I install the English version on to the PC with Japanese version of Windows XP Home edition?

Is it also possible to maintain the Japanese version and operate with the English version? If yes, how can it be done? The PC has 2 HDDs: C and D.

I will very much appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

hi guys,

is this possible?

I have 1 english download (not installed yet since i am upgrading the hardware and want to wait), and 3 licenses dutch.

I changed my mind and want 2 x english installed, so is this possible:

to load Windows 8 english version and activate with the dutch code?

that way i can easily use Easy File transfer for all the apps already on the first computer for the seond one.

Unfortunately one cannot use Easy File Transfer between computers with different language.

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

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

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!

A:Installing new Windows 7 Home Premium in English, with german copy

Anyone? A tip or idea .... is this possible???

Read other 6 answers

Hello everyone, my first post here, i hope you can help.

My girlfriend has a new-ish laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium, and recently it had some issues. The issues have got worse and it turned out to be a stuffed drive, out of warranty, its basically stuffed.

I got a new HD and installed it, but when i went digging for the Windows disc that came with it i couldn't find it. Some googling tells me that this laptop does not come with any install discs (seriously, wtf?!) only some manuals and other paper work. There was however a recovery drive which i assume was a partition for re-installing windows and the rest of the included bloat ware.

Without a Windows 7 disc we could not install it on the new drive, so i downloaded an ISO on my machine and created a DVD, but the idiot i am, i downloaded it in the wrong language. I didn't notice the NL at the end of the file, which im assuming is Netherlands? Please excuse my language ignorance if im wrong.

I know downloading software is wrong, i dont need a lecture. I'm just not going to pay for another copy of Windows 7 because the scumbag laptop manufacturer wont even include a bloody install disc!

I have the product key of course, luckily the sticker on the bottom of the laptop was still visible.

Sure i could download another ISO, but being bad once is enough for me and our net is pretty slow, it took 4 days to DL this copy!

Hope someone can help!

A:Windows Installation Not in English, Can I Force It To Run In English?

I would download or borrow an English language Windows Seven DVD. Install it with no product key. You have 30 days to evaluate. Also you can extend that period several times. It's not illegal. See this tutorial:

By that time you should be able to determine you have everything working and can then find out what you need to do for activation to keep it permanently.

I live in belgium and naturally buy my hardware here. I don't, however, like to install my sotware in dutch as it's much easier to solve problems in english.
This means that I install an english windows 7 on my pc and I install english versions of software as wel.

Now, even though I do all this, I still get text in dutch both from the system and from software. For example, some error messages from windows itself are in dutch.

Can anyone explain to me how this is possible and how i can change it? It must have something to do with the hardware but when I install software in english, I expect it to be in English!

A:English installs on an english windows still in dutch

I don't think the hardware has anything to do with it. Question is whether you truely installed an English version. If that was an OEM installed Dutch Win7, then it is not part of the 5 language version (En, Fr, Ger, Span, JPN). You need a 5 language version installation disk to get full English. How did you actually install the "English version" - from what source.

hi to all, once again I am in need of help. I've just bought a pc from a french bankrupt auction its a Dell dimension dim2400. My problem is that the OS is in french and as my french isgood but not that good, I want to change it to english. So I have been on line at ebay and got myself windows xp in English, but what I want to know is - do I have to format drive c to reinstall the new version? 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.

Hi, fellow Windows 7 Users. I have two Keyboard Layouts on my system. EN English (United Kingdom) and JP Japanese (Japan). For no reason, United States pops up there and I cannot remove it in the Keyboard Layouts. This system was bought in the UK and has a UK Keyboard Layout, this has nothing to do with the United States Keyboard Layout. Why does this keep popping up? And how can I stop this? Thanks in advance!

A:EN English (United States) Keeps Installing Itself!

Hi, I started having the same problem on my computer recently, for no reason. I also have JP Japanese (Japan) installed (along with French, which is also the language of my OS) however I've had it installed for more than a year.

Did you eventually find a solution to your problem or does someone have ideas now given that we both have Japanese installed?

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.

My new computer was given to me with Windows 7 Professional German version installed.

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 :

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 had a virus attack post which performed a recovery with ERD Commander (newer version post Microsoft acquisition). I have few control panel items appearing in Czech and occasionally some window appear completely in Czech.

Desktop, windows firewall and network setup wizard appear in Czech. This might be a clue, indicating something related to networking is corrupted.

The virus attack is cleaned up and extensively tested as problem free now.

I have checked a whole bunch of language, keyboard, display, appearance settings. I don't find anything unusual.

I feel the suspect areas might be:
Windows Symbols (used during ERD commander recovery)
Window Cab files (used during ERD commander recovery)
True type fonts>> I notice the European fonts are not true type. This might be a remote possibility.

Possible recovery would be to perform Win XP repair, this will be my last option.

Hi all you savvy experts,

I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop in Saudi Arabia. It came pre-installed with an Arabic version of windows 7.

I have managed to change most of the language options to English under the control panel, but the core of windows is still Arabic, I see this with the welcome message in the beginning and some install/uninstall and error messages.

After contacting Microsoft support, they said that I should contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and ask for a new OS in English.

Can anyone help me?

Kind regards,

As far as I know you have two options:
1/try to order original recovery installation disc on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
2/you must install own OS version using original Microsoft installation disc

If you use option 2 you must buy Microsoft disc and pay valid licence for it. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba download page http://www.toshibamea.com/en/Download-Files

I recently purchased a Dell and the only way the hardware options I wanted would come is if the OS was Windows 7 Pro with an included Windows 10 Pro License.  So I received the computer and I would like to upgrade it from the start.  However, I can't seem to find instructions on how to do this.
I have looked at the How to Set Up your new Dell Computer on the Knowledgebase, but it does not mention my situation.
I have looked at the Windows 10 Upgrade Walkthrough on the Knowledgebase. But it does not mention my situation.
I have tried the WIndows 10 Downgrade System on the Knowledgebase, but again it does not mention my situation.

The computer came with a purple CD that sys to ensure that the BIOS setting is set to UEFI mode prior to installing Windows 10.  But if I adjust this setting and run the CD there is no mention about upgrading to Windows 10 in the options available.
The Windows 10 Upgrade walkthrough talks about updating the Windows 7 install with Service Pack 1, but none of the info that came with the PC shows an upgrade code which I would probably need since the Microsoft free upgrade time period has expired.
So how to I upgrade this new computer to windows 10?  Just wondering what info I am missing.  I assumed this would be simple.  I shouldn't have to reinstall all my preinstalled software and drivers on a brand new computer on day one.

A:Windows 7 Professional English 64bit (Includes Windows 10 Pro License)

You have a MSDM tab embedded in your UEFI BIOS which contains your Windows 10 Pro OEM Product Key. Windows 10 RS1 Installation Media will automatically input this Product Key during Installation and Windows will automatically activate when you are online. See here for more details:

I am currently in japan so naturally when I bought a new keyboard it is a japanese keyboard. It has romanji and kana on the keys. When I first installed it the system treated it like a normal us keyboard. Also the extra keys that allow you to switch between input modes do not work. I did some searching and found how to get most of the layout correct. However the yen key still does not work. Also the extra japanese keys do not work at all. I have the logicool k200 media keyboard and as I said it is the japanese version. It has 3 extra keys next to the space bar and the key left of 1 which tilde on a normal us keyboard also has japanese symbols on it. Also I used the lang bar after switching the keyboard layout to japanese to switch to kana. After doing this it did type kana symbols but they did not match the kana symbol on the key. I don`t know much japanese yet but I would like to be able to use my keyboard as designed so when I do want to type in japanese I can use the buttons on the keyboard to switch modes and also type the yen character.

I recently helped a friend/customer build a new PC, everything came out great, not a single problem so I was kinda proud of myself for it

The simple issue is that I install Win 7 64 bit in English and it turns out my friend/customer can't really use it or does not feel comfortable because of it... he didn't say and I didn't ask

Is there any way that I can do something to convert it to Spanish in some sort of easy way or I just have to face the Music, toss what I did and start all over again from the beginning and install the OS in Spanish from scratch?

Say it isn't so!

A:Windows 7 English transfer to Spanish

If it's Ultimate you can use the Spanish language pack via optional Updates.

Otherwise what I would do is find a Spanish installer for that version to clean reinstall. There are reports that keys are language-specific, but other real-world tests report that same key will work for a different language within a certain region. If not you'll need to provide a Spanish key.

If you bought Builder's OEM then call MS Customer Service to tell them you installed it on the wrong machine, which is the kind of legit excuse they are repeatedly reported to accept to allow moving retail OEM. In your case they may want you to wait until you move it, or will release the key for reuse if that's possible.

but, i do like to have some english stuff,

i want to upgrade to the newer media player, but, i want the english version,

what happens, whenvever i download a lot of things, is, that it automatically gives me the default korean version of the download, i guess windows recognizes the language of the os system and gives you that download, but, i don't know how to get an english version,

my korean is pretty good, so i do navigate around looking for other sites to download from

Failing to repair my old Dell, I bought a Lenova laptop with XP Professional here in China. Unfortunately, the only guaranteed method for getting Windows in English is to buy an original CD, which is 1,900 RMB (187 GBP). That's far too expensive for me. However a friend says he may be able to install Windows 7 Ultimate, to which a language packed can be added that allows the language to be English.

But he hasn't tried it before and isn't sure it will work. Does anyone know about this?

Your Windows installation or recovery media will provide these files." How do I get past this screen to initiate the factory reset?
