I have read that you cannot change Language versions of XP unless you purchased the multi-lingual version, and then only if the language that you need is included in that version.

I read this on the Microsoft newsgroups a while ago but cannot locate the exact post for a reference.

I have removed my post in this thread because this member has three threads open basically on the same thing. He has a legal Windows XP with SP-1 and was told to go ahead and reformat on my other post.

Link 2 should have been productive as it explained how to install a multi-boot installation using a supported language, English, and Korean which is the installed version language.

The only other thing I can think of would be to call Microsoft Support.
