Windows 7: Help cant install windows 7 oem no recovery disk wrong language now.

Help cant install windows 7 oem no recovery disk wrong language now.

I recently dropped my laptop whilst in Italy and had a new hdd fitted at the local computer shop. They installed windows 7 home premium (using the activation code on back of laptop) but in Italian only. I asked them to change language to english but it was not possible. I have tried to download windows 7 from microsoft website but get the message 'The product key you entered appears to be for software pre installed by the manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery optons.'

I dont have a recovery disk so I contacted microsoft who told me to buy a new copy of windows 7. Asus havent got back to me. Is there any way of either changing the language to english or reinstalling windows 7 in english with no disk?

Don't download a Torrent. You are only asking for trouble.

It is totally safe.

Here is another safe site.

Unless you know someone that will let you use their disc or unless you want to buy windows, this is your only alternative.

Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 bit is X17-58997.iso

Microsoft DigitalRiver Mirror

Use the simple free program linked under my signature to burn the iso file to dvd at no faster then x4 speed.
