hi tom and to the community,

i have a hp-mini netbook that has Windows 7 starter 32-bit in German version, Since i am not good enough to read all their language. Can I install my Windows 7 Professional 32-bit English, together with the Windows 7 32-bit starter German?

I don't want to erase the installed Windows 7 starter 32-bit by the manufacturer.

Why not just change the language of the manufacturer's installed OS?

No need to duel boot anything.

Evidently you have to have Windows 7 Ultimate to do that.

This seems t have worked for many too, from my research. Never tried it my self though.

Hi :) 

You cannot do what you want...(both operating systems) so change language is your only option...

All the best Brett :)

If you follow the video tutorial, it should give you a visual reference to go by. That way you don't need to understand the language.

When you are done, at least 90% of what is on the HDD should be in English. 100% of the OS should be in English.

Some companies put their own bloat-ware on a computer. Some of it may not get translated. You can uninstall most of it though.


This is an option too. Though you may need help from a friend who reads German, and it will cost money.:

Lastly, try calling HP and see if they may be able to help in some way. ie. English replacement disk or such.

I don't know if your CD-Key would work with another person's English copy of Windows 7 starter, but that may be worth a try too.


thanks everyone for these words, it gave me an idea which i already managed to solved my problem. what i did is back up my german version, did a clean install with my english version. then i put back every thing from the backup files.

Thank You all, until next brain freeze again :)
