    That I don't know? I guess you could go with English US and then add a language pack for English India, if one exists.

    Ok, I'll go with that. I thought by Single Language it meant that we should only download the exact language version, was little bit confused. Thanks for clarifying that one

    My reference to Single language is to with the Edition selection box. You'll see 8.1, 8.1 Pro and 8.1 Single Language listed. Single Language is a special version of Core. I don't know a whole lot about it other than that ISO is hard to find. It's not listed on MSDN. The normal 8 Core and Pro will let pick a language during install. Like English US or English Canadian etc. I don't think you get that option with the Single language version. It's locked into one specific language. That's my guess anyway. I did a quick Google search but didn't find much.

    If you have Windows Single Language version (see screenshot below), you can't change your Windows display language.

    Win8.1 Pro | Win10TP Pro - boot to VHD


    Thanks everyone, I was glad to find the tool and share what I found.

    Rich and Kerry have fleshed out some of the process with more details (ESD folder and various install scenarios. and Shawn put the information front and center as Option One.

    Greg posted in the 'original' thread that the folks working on Win10 at MS know about the tool, so it sounds as though this will also be available for that release. It would be a good thing to test for Win10 TP bld 9865 or whatever the next versioning number will be.

    Kudos all around! The drinks are on Shawn!

    Late to answer, but this intrigues me.

    Since the language list is language specific, I wondered if MS offered Hindi English

    हिंदी अंग्रेजी
    Hindī aṅgrējī

    or some other variant (English Hindi ... Hinglish??) in a character set that I do not understand.

    My screenshot is also the identical as posted, with Windows 8.1 Single Language printed. So, by changing display language what you meant? In the language section & region window , as I posted the screenshot , it's written English - India. This is an OEM laptop with Win 8.1 pre installed.
    What should I be choosing in the language drop-down menu during the clean install now - just en-us?

    I dug a little deeper:
    Language packs - Microsoft Windows

    Language Native name Base language required
    Hindi हिंदी English (United States) or
    English (United Kingdom)
    I would think English en-gb would be the logical choice if there isn't a Hindi English entry.

    You can change your keyboard layout language (if you have Windows Single Language version), but you can't change your Windows display language (see screenshot below).

    I want English-India , don't want Hindi. So to get it, I've to just select either English - US or GB, am i correct?
