Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

The change language can be downloaded with Microsoft update, unfortunately that feature isn't supported by the Home edition.

I am not sure what you mean by doing this in Home Premium, but with a Ultimate CD. If you want to take advantage of the displaying menus, dialog boxes, Help topics, and other text in 35 different languages you will need to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (where you are able to install a Multilingual User Interface Pack) -

However you can install a Language Interface Pack (LIP) in other editions of Windows 7 -

Hope this helps!

By the way I don't think there are "Ultimate CD" or "Home Premium CD" any more, they are all the same CD. And the Product key tells the setup program what edition to install.
