    First of all, correct me if I'm wrong. Windows XP don't really have language versions. All the languages are integrated into the operating system, and the user can choose what language version they wish to use upon installation. Yes?

    If what I said is incorrect, ignore the following question. :p

    So, I've installed my windows and set it up in Korean language. Since that seems to be the cause of rendering my computer unbootable when I install the GANT 2 shell pack, is there a way to change the language of my operating system without reinstalling it? Through the control panel, perhaps?

    Much thanks~ :D

    You can't change the language of a localized Windows version. Only way to do this would be to install a MUI (multi language userinterface) pack to an English version of XP Pro. MUI packs are only available to corporate users - not distributed in the usual retail channels.

    You can change the input language (keyboard layout and such) in control panel - regional and language settings, but to change the language of menus, toolbars, etc you need to purchase and install a completely new full version of XP.
