Language Problems... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently, (Christmas), a relative of mine offered me a laptop with vista home primium, now... my problem is, this laptop was bought in germany, and I don't understand a single german word, since the instalation is OEM, I can't even get a windows from the language I want and use a genuine key, so what I want to know, is if microsoft has a way to solve problems such has this... I know that language packs don't work in home premium, so I'm left with no solution...

    Is there possibly any area where I can actually grab a version of vista home premium where my OEM key might work!?

    PS: windows is fully german... I just wanna change it to english...

    Thks in advance
