Install East Asian language - xjis.nls file not found in \i386

Hi,

I just got S12 with English version XP. When I tried to install East Asian language, it tells me that the xjis.nls file is not found in either d:\i386 or c:\i386. Does someone know how to install East Asian languages?

 

Thanks,

Ivy

Folks with the S10 model found the xjis.nls where you looked on C drive.

I pulled it from a different XP machine before the solution was posted.

 

Just do a Google search for "xjis.nls".

You will find lots of info and I think you will find a copy of the file.

 

Find a previous discussion here..

Worst case is send a message with your address, and I'll forward along to you.

Thanks for the reply. I just found that my whole i386 folder is missing under either c or d drive so although I downloaded xjis.nls, I am still missing all other required files such as c_10001.nls. Do you know any place I can find or download i386? Will I be missing other functions without this folder? Thanks!

Weird.. your i386 folder is missing.
Its about 500 MB and contains more than 6,000 mostly essential files. 
Pretty sure XP won't boot without it.
 
Perhaps your system files have been made invisible.
Can't remember how to change that in XP, to be honest!

Hi,

unfortunately , there is no i386 folder that you need to build an selfmade XP on Ideapad S12 ...

even on recovery partition neither zipped or compressed or hidden...

xcuse me to disappoint you at this ...

 

sincerely KalvinKlein

hi,

I have same trouble that you had in installing East Asian Language.

I had talked with Lenovo tech service, but they cannot helpme to solve this trouble, at this point.

 

Did you find solution, or still struggling it?  Please let me know if you found solution.

 

Thnx.

Stephen

Try this link, or just Google xjis.nls.

Its a very common problem, not just with Lenovo machines.

Yes, it's an annoying problem. i ended up getting an external DVD drive, and used my old copy of Windows XP to install the languages. Hope it's helpful.

To view system files, open any windows explorer (e.g. open up My Computer), go to Tools--> Folder Options. Go to the "View" tab, Files and folders --> hidden files and folders --> show hidden files and folders. If you really want to be able to view essential system files (at your own risk), scroll down a bit more and untick "hide protected operating system files (recommended)"

 

However, I also cannot find i386. In fact, when i used Search, I found a lot of folders with the same name i386. O.X so doesn't seem to help. (I'm using a lenovo ideapad s10 by the way).
