Re: Regional and Language problems getting Vista into English
From what you told us, it looks like you will have to purchase a full retail
version of Windows.
You should be able to create a dual boot system if you want to keep the
Greek version, or you can start with a clean disk and install an English
Usually the recover disk can only be used on an original/same language
Windows 7 is the latest version and works much better than previous
