I already test with Bulgarian Language Pack  - doesn't work.

For first - for IE - I already put 8 version, this is for 7 and will not be installed at all.

According to the comment of Riddermark, it says:-

"You need a CD of XP-but it does a full version: P.

- Start-Run and run the following installation:

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection LANGUAGE_COLLECTION.BASIC.INSTALL 00000402 %WINDIR%\inf\intl.inf

  Language code can be found here:
  http://msdn.microsoft.com/zh-tw/goglobal/bb895996.aspx

- Attribute its CD-ROM i386 and then copy whatever is necessary. I personally got 2nd bd Serbian language and because most people see it recommended for the locale.

- And then agriculture decision, but simply have no idea how else to fix it. Dig intl.inf from the original CD in winxp / inf site of this performance edition-a.

Restartets Then, choose your locale Bulgarian / Serbian and everything works: P 100% it is pretty dirty solution, but better no how to do so much with limited knowledge"

10x. You help look prety like it will fix the problem, that is why I give you point. For sorry I already install Win 7, it accept the SATA HDD in install and do not demand to load with diskete SATA drivers.

Good! Glad to know that you are on windows 7 now.

Handling language input is a difficult task for xp as I need to use google translator to get the meaning of the fix in a forum in a foreign language.
