So I finally upgraded to a new computer from my 2009 model Toshiba running Win 7 64 home premium. Because I am a nice guy, I want to give the old computer, which still works perfectly fine, to my little sister. Last night I sat down to do a clean install of Windows on the computer and several hours later I ended up only being able to boot a German version of Windows AND it cant find the driver for my wireless adapter, so I cant use the internet to download a language changing program. So here's what I did:
I downloaded the Win 7 ISO's from this site: http://mirror.coreno...vercontent.net/
I downloaded this exact ISO: de_windows_7_home_premium_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676536.iso
Before I did that I used Produkey to find my Windows Product key.
I then used Rufus to load the ISO on to my 16gb thumb drive. So now I had a good USB install disk, and a valid product key.
So I rebooted the computer, entered boot manager, booted up from my thumb drive, and chose to install the new version of windows on my existing HDD. HOWEVER, once i got to the point of setting up my clean windows install, IT ONLY ALLOWED ME TO CHOOSE GERMAN AS THE LANGUAGE. So naturally I assumed that once i finished the install i'd be able to change the language, so I used google translate to get through the install and low and behold, it is no easy task to change the language in Home Premium. So i did some more reading and found that I could download a program called Vistalizator to change the language. Great! But when I tried to access the internet to download said program, the computer would not connect to the internet because the wireless network adapter driver could not be found. I can also not figure out how to boot up my other version of WIn 7 that i was running. Is it still there? Or did it get overwritten when I installed the new version of the same HDD?
What I would like to do is start completely over. I want to install a brand new clean Windows 7 in ENGLISH and remove all other version of the operating system. If anybody could help me do that, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
