It may help you&nbsp;out.</p> <p>As I was working for a South Korean conglomerate, I had access to Windows 7 Enterprise K. So, I have to face a lot of trouble to make the conversion to English. As, there is no Microsoft&rsquo;s official help available, I have to find it myself. It would be great if I can share this with proper screen-shots of Korean Windows. But as I had already converted, I could not. Sorry about&nbsp;that.</p> <p>First of all, it will be best if you can install Windows 7 English version directly.<br> If not possible at all, like your company have license only to use Korean version, or you purchased your laptop or <span class="caps">PC</span> in Korea. In those cases this post may&nbsp;help. </p> <p><strong>I am assuming&nbsp;that:</strong></p> <ul> <li>You have a valid license key or <span class="caps">OEM</span> <span class="caps">VLK</span>(Volume License Key) of Windows 7, either for Enterprise or for Ultimate&nbsp;edition. </li> <li>If you don&rsquo;t have Enterprise or Ultimate edition, but you have Home or Professional addition, the following method probably won&rsquo;t&nbsp;work. </li> </ul> <h2 id="steps">Steps:<a class="headerlink" href="#steps" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <ul> <li>Install <strong>Windows 7 K</strong> on your <span class="caps">PC</span>; <span class="caps">DON</span>&rsquo;T change any settings if you don&rsquo;t understand what it is&nbsp;saying.</li> <li>Don&rsquo;t install any anti-virus yet. Or, any other system&nbsp;software.</li> <li>Validate and register your&nbsp;license.</li> <li>Go to <strong>Windows update</strong> on your <span class="caps">PC</span>.<br> And update your Windows to Service pack 1. Please <strong>avoid</strong> updating Internet Explorer-8 to 9. Uncheck&nbsp;it.</li> <li>Now Windows will restart&nbsp;automatically.</li> <li>Again, Go to Windows update. In the <strong>optional</strong> section, you&rsquo;ll will see a long list of language pack. Select <em>English</em>. </li> <li>Complete update. Again&nbsp;restart.</li> <li>If your <em>Windows 7 K</em> is not converted to <em>Windows 7(English)</em> then from <strong>Language settings</strong>, choose <strong>English</strong> as display&nbsp;language.</li> <li>Again,&nbsp;restart. </li> <li>Now it should be in English. Some text still may be in Korean. Don&rsquo;t bother for it. Your life will be quite okay without&nbsp;those.</li> <li>Now, install whatever software you&nbsp;want.</li> </ul> <h2 id="postscript">Postscript<a class="headerlink" href="#postscript" title="Permanent link">&para;</a></h2> <ul> <li>If now you are in trouble with Microsoft Office&rsquo;s Korean package, check out <a href="https://blog.kmonsoor.com/install-english-language-on-microsoft-office-2007-2010/">my relevant&nbsp;post.</a> </li> <li>After completion, you may find trouble using Microsoft&rsquo;s <strong>Internet Explorer 9</strong>. I don&rsquo;t know why <strong>Internet Explorer 9</strong> don&rsquo;t work properly on Windows 7.<br> If you face problem after installing it like &ldquo;<span class="caps">I.E.</span> is not responding&#8230;.&rdquo;, &ldquo;<span class="caps">I.E.</span> closed unexpectedly&rdquo; etc. <strong>uninstall that</strong>. </li> </ul> <p>But how? <a href="https://blog.kmonsoor.com/uninstall-ie-9/">Please visit my relevant&nbsp;post.</a></p>
