Installing ENG Windows 7 Ultimate on a Japanese laptop

I cannot seem to figure out how to get the keyboard layout to install correctly. Every time I install whether it's japanese keyboard, IME keyboard, even installing in English with English keyboard always everything to the right of the U, H and N keys comes up wrong. my j's k's and l's are all numbers. ANy idea how I can solve this? Install in English and then add Japanese keyboard later? Any help welcome. Thanks

open control panel, region&languages, install/unnistall langauges, pop up window should appear, choose windows update, it should take you to some MS link to choose what language you want to install.
In my case, during instalation, I choosed input language macedonian,after instalation, I'm switching between my language and english with left alt+shift

You can open the language bar in the task ar and edit your options from there aswell.
Once you have the language and keyboard you want delete the old layout to set your new one as the main/boot language.

Also make sure your drivers are up to date for your keyboard interface,check the manufactors site.

installed all the updates to the laptop, changed display language to Japanese, but the problem persists. I only have a XP home edition driver disk for the laptop. Which driver should I be searching for on the dell website? Any ideas?

You have the numeric lock on. Check your keys to the right of the Function keys in the top row. The num lock often works in conjunction with the Fn key. Just hit it (if necessary together with Fn) and it will work. This is a bad habit of the Windows installer, it always turns the num lock on.
