Alexios, please reply to my posts, not your original one, and continue the
crosspost to microsoft.public.windows.vista.installation_setup newsgroup.
Please (re)visit this section of Vista Help:
How do I get additional language files?
Expand the section "To get additional MUIs by using Windows Update." At the
bottom, you will see...
"Note: If Windows doesn't find any updates when you click Check for updates,
wait a day and then try again."
If you did, in fact, manage to properly uninstall the English-language MUI,
see if it's offered again after a day or so.
Change the display language
