I would like to know if anyone can help me with a question I have. Is it
possible to change windows xp pro in Spanish to windows xp pro in English
using the same license? I am very familar with english version and I am
having a hard time because I bought a new computer and it came with windows
xp pro in spanish. I already paid for the license.
I will appreciate any answer or trace

You must either use a retail full install CD in English and
do a clean install or set up a dual boot. You can do a
clean install with a Microsoft OEM CD.

You cannot upgrade or convert from one language version of the OS
to another, so you'll have to purchase and use the full version of
WinXP (in whatever language you want) to perform a clean installation.

Cannot Upgrade or Install a Different Language Version of Windows XP
