Can I upgrade windows 7 between different languages ????

Hey,
Today I wanted to upgrade my Windows 7 from its dvd, but it did not allow me as my Current windows language is German and the dvd is in English.
Now the Question is that if I install the English language pack from Windows Update will I be able to Upgrade ?????

Thanks in advance.

How are you trying to install the language pack?

You need to have Ultimate installed to use language packs.

OK, if you have Ultimate there is no upgrade.

If you are having problems installing the language pack from windows update, you will get better info if you give better info.

What is the problem you are having? Detailed responses are better than "DLL errors (ntdll.dll)"
