Windows 7: Can I change language settings with new laptop clean install

Can I change language settings with new laptop clean install

Hi all,

This is problably a basic question however I am thinking of buying a new laptop.

The laptop comes with windows7, however I am buying the laptop in a european country, I am assuming that when I take it out of the box that I will do a clean install of windows 7 and as such will be able to choose english as the language instead of the language of the country that I am buying the laptop in.

Is this the case?

Thanks in advance.

Mark

Windows 7 Home Premium, From what i have experience you will be able to chose region, language and keyboard format at the setup stage. Once windows setup is complete and done it's not possible anymore unless you have Ultimate. I know i can download optional language packs if i need to. Professional might also have the option.

Please wait for someone else to give a confirmation. From my own experience i been able to change language to Spanish on US bough laptops.
