I do believe this is from right before I did my first Repair Install, would this get me back to right before it and make me able to use my new ISO file?

I'll have a look at it nonetheless.

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD.
startup repair disc-create

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?
No, we have not, and I must've missed that message.. my bad..
We do still have the same ISO file but it wasn't running SP1.

Oh and I've always had a D: drive, is that still a problem?

Alright, getting pretty close here.
We've copied almost every Dutch LP file into my own Windows and almost everything is in Dutch now, but some things can't be changed it seems.
When we create a new user account, there seems to be more in Dutch than on my own account for some reason.
(both accounts have Dutch selected as language however)
So can anyone tell me where to change account options in the Registry?
I might be able to copy the settings from the account that has more in Dutch.

For example, when I click the start menu orb there's this tab called: Devices and Printers.
When I got on the other user account which I just made it's called: Apparaten en Printers.

I suspect this to be changeable in the Registry.

I would not mess with the Registry unless you find a known fix for that.

Since new accounts are working correctly you can transfer your files over to a new account and then when it's set up as you wish delete the problem account.

You'll need to have at least one Administrative account.

Alright then, if anyone knows, please share with me.

If not, does anyone know how to transfer account settings?

I don't recommend transferring account settings as they can be a corruption path. Better to start over with new ones.

Favorites/Bookmarks can be exported to an HTML file using the browser Export function, then reimported back in. IE9 Favorites are also populated in your Favorites User folder.

However if you want to try anyway, you can simply copy over hidden AppData file contents under your User name. You must unhide them first in Control panel>Folder Options.

There is also Windows Easy Transfer Wizard available by typing its name in Start Search box but is hardly worth the trouble.

When I was trying to copy my old account to my new account, I logged out for a sec to check an option and I noticed it had magically changed while editing my newer account, the only thing I see in English now is: Starting Windows, Logging on/off (which I don't see anymore because I'm using only 1 account now) and the Welcome message.
If only I could change those to Dutch..
I'm very happy however because I had to change and re-do so much stuff..

So, unless someone knows how to fix those last few English remains I guess I could mark as resolved.
So I'll leave this open for a few days.

Hi there
I think the Logon screen and welcome message is available from the Region and Language settings
Choose Administrative
Copy settings

then you should see 2 boxes -- copy to welcome screen and the other one (I'm not on my own machine now so I can't remember)

Check both those boxes and you'll find you should get your new logon screen etc in Dutch (or whatever)

It doesn't work but I don't come across the log-in screen anyway since I have only 1 account.
