Upgrading from W7 HP to W7 Ultimate with an different language
I've been having a bit of a headache with this.
I bought a Sony Vaio notebook in Germany (I live here) and for the particular model (F Series) I choosed they could not sell me the Windows 7 in English only in German.
It will arrive in one week with the Windows 7 Home Premium in German.
As my German is just okay I want to change the language to either English or Portuguese (I come from Brazil) and I have been reading on this website and other about Windows Anytime Upgrade and how the MUI (Multilanguage User Interface) is a technology only available for the W7 Ultimate.
It just happens that I have a DVD with the Windows 7 Ultimate in Portuguese and another with a friend of mine in English. I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade to the Ultimate version of W7 using the DVD and without having to do a clean install.
Is there going to be a problem because the language in the DVD is not German)
The American W7 Ultimate DVD I have is brand new and it would be a shame if I had to do all the configuration of my brand new Sony Vaio just because of the language.
Thanks in advance.
