This is Biruk, I bought a lenove Z580 laptop and the language of operating system is in Germany which i don't understand (I am a student in Austria). Can anyone please guide me how to change the language of the operating system to English? I have tried my best by creating a recoversy disc hoping that hoping that it will prompt me to format/recover it in English but nothing, it is still in Germany.
Your help is vital and highly appreciated!

You can only change the launguage in windows 7 ultimate as it has multi-language support.
You may be able to use a hack, but i dont know if we allowed to talk about it here.

I have only ever had Windows 7 home premium, and it askes you your language when you install it, and it says once you chose your language you cannot change it again.
I cannot remember when when i first setup my Lenovo Notebook if it asked me my language if it did just do a system recovery, but burn the recovery dvd`s before you do.
On my Z580 the D: drive has a backup of all the software and drivers, make a copy of this.

Thanks John once again!
Yeah, that was what i know from other laptops (for example in Swedeish language) it ask you to choose your language but this one, strange! it only allows you to choose the keyboard setting and even this one is in Germany.
It all starts in Germany, weird....
Anyways, I will just format it with a new windows 7 os and install all the drivers from D:/
Cheers and Good Night!
