    Is it possible to change from korean windows xp to
    english windows xp without reloading windows from new
    english xp disk? The computer is from Korea. Any info
    would be helpful.

    Thanks

  2. Hi jt,

    No, it's not possible. In order to install a different language version of
    Windows, you need to perform a clean install (i.e., format and install
    Windows).


    Regards,

  3. Greetings --

    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
    English WinXP to perform a clean installation.
