Reinstalling Windows XP and changing the language

If you need to reinstall Windows XP but you can’t find your key anymore, don’t panic, there is a solution 😉

On this website are instructions how to do it.

Ever wanted to change the system language? Here are instructions how to do it.

Both solutions I’ve tried in Virtualbox and they work, but :

After installing XP DON’T upgrade your system.

First activate your system, then install the Service Pack in the desired language, reboot and get the latest updates (yes, updating still works)

On my system almost everything is in English, some folder names are still in Dutch but they can be renamed.

Windows XP must be considered UNSAFE, use it only if you have no other option.
