Computer Question, Please Help

Tue Feb 03, 2004 3:55 pm

Im going to Hungary (Europe) in a few months and I would like to know if they have desktop computers that already have Windows XP-Professional ENGLISH version????

Because most of the catalogs that someone sent me from there had the Hungarian version of XP-Professional. I am looking forward to buying a computer there, preferrably with Windows XP-Professional English Version.

Dunno about H, but over in F there's in no English OEM XP available when purchasing a new computer, so you should probably bring your CD over.

Ok, but there is a problem though. Most people say that the CDs dont really work on foreign versions of XP.

Eh?

Are you thinking of localisation (keyboard, UI language, &c) or of local releases?

Well, the problem is, I have all my backed up files on a CD-R. And Im afraid it wont work on the Hungarian version of XP.

It should not be a problem , like UTA said carry an XP Professional OEM version CD with you just in case . The Keyboard layout might be different in Hungary , as it is in Germany , UK and France , but you definitely get the US style keyboards there. CD's not working ... please elaborate , as long as the CD is cut in a format the reader can recognize , it does not make a difference if the OS is XP hungarian or XP english , it will read the CD. We port files in English to Japanese versions of various Windows OS's all the time and they never give problems .

Regards
