Language change in XP Home

Posted: 05-17-2004, 04:16 PM
I have XP Home in Dutch and I want it in English. I chose
English in all the language options but it made no
difference. I have XP in English seperate but if I
install it I loose all my support (very annoying).

Thanks all
Chris

Windows XP is written in specific language versions, therefore one
cannot change it from one language version to another. You'll need
to purchase a "Full Version" of Windows XP in the language version
you desire, reformat your drive and install it "clean".

Or if you have an available empty drive or partition, you can install
another "Full Version" of Windows XP in a different language version
and create a dual-boot configuration.

A good third-party partitioning program is Partition Magic 8.
