Windows 7 switch base OS language - MUI

We have a Windows 7 build which contains multiple language packs. Unfortunately some of the engineers deploying the new build have not followed the instructions and have selected languages other than English as the base OS language.

When connecting to these machines to check event viewers etc. the information is in other languages (German, French etc.). I have been able to write a query in SCCM which will show where the non-english base is in use.

I am able to change the settings manually at machines but I would like to be able to deploy a script which will do this automatically.

Can anyone advise how to do this?

Thanks

Aidan

try to look here:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/deploymentguys/archive/2010/01/20/configuring-regional-and-language-settings-online-in-an-mdt-task-sequence.aspx

I think you have to write and xml file, and then run the command
cmd /c control.exe intl.cpl,,/f:"C:\English.xml"

Such file, English.xml should have a sintax like this (but i am not sure, check the original link)

<gs:GlobalizationServices xmlns:gs="urn:longhornGlobalizationUnattend">  <!--User List--> <gs:UserList> <gs:User UserID="Current"/> </gs:UserList>  <!—Display Language-->  <gs:MUILanguagePreferences>  <gs:MUILanguage Value="en-US" />  <gs:MUIFallback Value="en-US" /> </gs:MUILanguagePreferences>  </gs:GlobalizationServices>
