Hey everybody!
I need to translate a Spanish Windows XP to English.
It's a Home Edition SP3
(already googled it).
Any good ideas about how?
Thanks

Go to torrent site and type in keyword "Windows XP Home" and download Windows XP. Use the serial from your Spanish CD to activate Windows XP as I do not promote piracy.

It depends on the setupp.ini in the I386 folder...
If it says
Code:
Pid=55277000
It's a retail


Code:
Pid=55277OEM
It's an OEM...


If it's a retail, just change the 000 to OEM

Great!
Spanish editions are not something I like. They always become laaaaaaaarger, by example:
Control Panel
Panel de Control

Regional Options
Configuracion Regional

Slideshow
Presentacion Con Diapositivas

So menus change sizes, and they don't look nice at all.
That's why I want English versions better

It are microsoft made language packs. They transelate an installed version to another language

You can also try to search for: MUI

They DONT work.

1) There are no english LP's available, only LP's for other languages.
2) MUI only work for Professional.
