Windows 7 language change?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i installed a german version of windows 7 on my PC and downloaded the update from MS to change it to english.

My only question is will this cause any issues in the long run? Am i better of borrowing a english one and installing that now( as i just built a new pc yesterday so not much data on it yet)

I know that when it asks you to start windows normally or when you clock F8 that is still in German >_< ( any way to change this)
This is what happens when your german friends tells you to borrow his disk

you can only download language packs in 7 ultimate to my knowledge which will change everything in the system. But you would have to do that through windows updates and select optional. But that only applies to inside the OS not actual booting up.

As for installing via usb. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/m.../dd535816.aspx

diskpart is a command you type into command prompt. Make sure you are run with admin rights or else it wont work.

Windows 7 Enterprise and ultimate allow you to install additional language packs. Via Windows Update is best option but pretty sure you can download them direct from Microsoft.

You can put Windows on a USB stick, it works fine.

Follow this:
http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-in...working-guide/

Or you can Google "How to install W7 from a USB stick" and dozens of tutorials show up.

Hope that helps.

Oh, if the update didn't work even after restarting a couple of times, you should reinstall Windows.
