Spanish to English language upgrade

I am about to receive a new PC that will have a Spanish version Win 7 Home Premium.
If I install that version and then buy an English version Ultimate Upgrade will that install and change the language to English?
Or would I have to buy the Spanish upgrade and then get the language packs?

Ken.

Hello lasatalayas, welcome to Seven Forums!



I'm not sure it'll "upgrade" the language but the only versions that are available for the MLS (Multi Language Support) is the Ultimate and Enterprise versions, have a look at the SKU chart below.

Thanks for the quick response.
I wonder if the better alternative might to just buy an English that it can work with the drivers that come with with PC.
(I'm buying in Spain which is why it comes with a Spanish Edition in the first place).
