Windows 8 Windows8 Totally in Chinese-How Do I Get BackTo English

Hi Mike-Thanks for the info. I haven't had any luck with it , I just get 8 options all in Chinese and as I work through each one they lead me on a path to nowhere.
You might try just downloading a new Windows install ISO file and making a new English disk and start over.
It sounds like you downloaded a foreign language disk.

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO Image Downloads

Remember you have to burn the ISO file to a disk using "Image Burn" software.
You can download it free.

As long as you have a serial number it will work

7 will burn the .ISO to DVD natively. No added image burning software needed. Rt Clk the .ISO > Burn Img to Disc"
