    Reinstallation using upgrade usb in different system lang


    Hi all,

    I upgraded to 7 to 8 Pro using usb to do clean install. I want to reinstall again from usb and change the system language from French to English as not everything comes up in English by changing language settings. Device descriptions, system accounts, bitlocker screens are still French.

    Is this possible? When I try the installation instructions are in French. Do I need an English ISO or can I change the one I have?

    Thanks

    No can do - the drop down list only has French.

    Yes, you need a English ISO.

    OK, thanks. I was hoping that I could change the one I got as I expect Microsoft will charge more for it.
