How to upgrade Vista Home Premium to Ultimate...

A friend has a new laptop with Vista Home Premium Belgian French edition.

They would prefer to have Vista in Engliah and are considering upgrading to Ultimate to give them the language option - despite reports to the contrary there doesn't seem to be a way to invoke English from the Belgian French version that was pre-installed.

Region/Language options just give keyboard changes.

What is the best way to do this.. or should they just get a new English Home Premium?

I've heard that upgrading to Ultimate is effectively a clean install anyway as it destroys data.

Any advice appreciated.
