    Need help with Default Language in Windows 8


    Well here's my problem, I have a Windows 8 ISO and have located the Default Language file in the ISO. But I need a way to Remove it (Since I cant just delete the Folder I think) and Replace it with mine (English-US or "EN-US"). I remember back in the Windows 7 days you could use DISM and Remove/Replace Language Packs through the WIM file. But I cant use this for Windows 8. Does anyone have any idea on what I could do?

    More Info: The Language Pack is a CAB file, meaning it doesn't just Run and Install. DISM will only work if I can use a WIM, which I don't have since mine is an ISO. My problem is that the Installation is in a Different Language and the OS is as well. Not to mention that the Keyboard is messed up. I would like to fix my ISO not use a different one.

    Thanks for the help, DWreck.
