Reinstall to English

I have a S10 and had chose Traditional Chinese on the initial install but now I want to change it back to English completely.  Even thought I have changed all the language setting to English (US), it does not change any of the menu or any system messages to English.  Anyone know how I can reinstall the whole systems back to English?

Re: Reinstall to English

If it's Windows, the only way is to reinstall windows from scratch and switch from the initial setup settings.
If you are operating a system that was preloaded to your S10, run One Key Recovery and restore from initial backup.

Re: Reinstall to English

If the laptop came with pre-installed Windows 7 Chinese edition then it cannot be change to English edition.

 

You can install Windows 7 English edition and remove pre-installed Windows 7 Chinese edition.

 

You can purchase the Windows 7 English Operating System disc from Microsoft or Microsoft Channel partner.

 

Best Regards,

Tanuj

Re: Reinstall to English

usually systems come wıth two language option at start-up so you can chose. if there was a screen like that, re-installing the okr will offer you to choose the language at start-up.

otherwise, you will need to re-install the operation system and you don't need to buy dvd, you can download legal windows iso ( please, see the windows 7 board ) but clean windows installation may cause one key recover system stops.
