    I bought a laptop here in China not knowing about the Windows 11 Home Chinese only version, so I formatted the drive, bought a license for windows 10 and installed it. NOw, Windows 10 is running, but many of the devices in device manager are unrecognized and I do not have a netword card in device manager, only 8 WAN miniports. I'm trying to find the drivers, but I can't and I'm starting to think it might be impossible;

    Laptop bought in China having chinese language and not able change the language

    If you bought the laptop in China, it was installed with the localized Chinese version of Windows. If you want the English version of Windows, you have to buy that version of Windows and install it (via clean install) on your laptop.

    Installing English version of Windows 7 on a laptop that came with Japanese version

    Hi guys,

    I finally bought a small laptop and t came with the Japanese version of Windows 7 x64. It is an Asus UL20A. Now, since I have an English version of Windows 7 Home Premium (32bit) with me, can I install that and put the CD Key which came with laptop to activate? Or do I have to find a special OEM disk to do this?

    There are few reasons why I wanna do this.
    1. Although I managed to change the interface to English, it is not as good as the native English version. At some places, the fonts are too small and ugly.
    2. I need to install 32bit Windows so that I can save a little bit more RAM.
    3. I need to make the C drive smaller. However, I don't know how this will affect the recovery partition. Can I simply format the drive where Windows is currently installed in, and install Windows 7 in there? Will I be able to recover to the original state (if the need to do so arises) by using that partition (by pressing F9 when booting up)? Though I have the recovery disks with me, the laptop doesn't come with an optical drive. So they are useless. Recovery partition is important.
