I just bought a Sony Vaio, CR VGN-CR21LH laptop with vista home basic installed. I bought it in Korea, hence it is all in Korean.

My question basically is, if I install Vista ultimate in english, will everything (programs etc) automatically become English?

Is Vista the operating system & does it dictate the language for the computer?

Also, how do I find out what BIOS I have & whether it supports slic (v2)?

I realise this is not totally focused to Vista but many thanks for any help that is given.

Regards & happy new year.

Vista Ultimate is able to switch languages fairly easily through Windows Updates. Try this link for detailed instructions: http://thelazyadmin.com/blogs/thelazyadmin...uage-packs.aspx
