Language Packs

Hi. I am working from a laptop that I recently bought, but I would love to have it in my native language. Would there be any way that Under Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit OEM, that I could either change the language to Italian or download the Italian Language pack from somewhere?

I should have been clearer. I traded my laptop for the mainboard and CPU in my desktop. So if there is a fix, then I have no way to do it now.

Legally and in accordance with Windows End User License Agreement you have no other options than to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Language packs are available as optional updates in Ultimate and Enterprise editions only (Enterprise = Ultimate with volume licencing).

You simply can not install language packs to Home Premium and maintain your system and activation validity. I strongly advice you against trying any third party solutions, reasons can be found in this post. To put it simply, you have to invest some money in Ultimate to get the additional language pack feature.
