I reinstall a Fujitsu notebook last week, with there OEM Win7 DVD, option of 5 language.
There DVD is a Win7, not a HD type recovery disk.

Some manufacturers use this system, accepted by Microsoft. For instance if you buy a HP computer with preinstalled Windows in my native Finland, when you boot it first time it asks if you want to use Finnish, Swedish or English OS. This choice is only possible once; thereafter you can not change the chosen language of that computer, not even if you do a system recovery using recovery partition or disks.

With Fujitsu DVD you can reinstall 100 times, language option on all reinstalls.
