Windows 7: Korean OS license convert to English but recognized as not genuine

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
 
 

Microsoft support is available for retail versions only, but OEM versions have to be supported by the manufacturer of the laptop. Microsoft does not support the OEM versions. That is the reason why they are cheap compared to retail versions.

If you think you don't need Microsoft support then you better go with OEM route. I myself, prefer OEM as I never needed Microsoft support. (with the excellent support available from forums like Windows Seven Forums and other help from internet )

By the way my OS version is Windows 7 Home Premium K which the letter K stands for Korean.
If you upgrade to Ultimate then there should be no restrictions on where you are - so far as I know, there are no GeoBlocked versions of Ultimate (but I may be wrong).
You can use any of the 40-odd languages (or even all of them - one at a time<g>) that you can download from Windows Updates at any time in any place.

Thank you. Thank you and thank you. All of the members here are great and support here is really far better than the Manufacturer and even Microsoft which leads me to use Pirated software (joking).

Anyway, just a followup question. I think Noel just answered this but I just wanna make it very clear. I am worrying if i upgrade to ultimate version of win7 K and i go back to philippines, will the WAT allow me to use my Korean License in the Philippines? There might be some issues regarding this? And of course I am going to use English language not Tagalog (there is no Tagalog OS, if there will be in the future, I will not use it because translations are literal like in some cellphones to the extent that it is no longer understandable). Again, Noel answered this already but i am very much concerned with the WAT restrictions.

You will only need to ensure that the Ultimate you purchase is not Geo-blocked.
How to Tell

The best way to do this is to purchase direct from MS at the MS Store - Microsoft Store Korea
(Note - my Korean is non-existent, so you'll have to check the details yourself<g>)
