my computer is running on windows xp pro sp2 german version and i have written to microsoft about the cross language rights about changing it to english version but to no avail so i have purchased a sealed version of windows xp pro sp2 OEM with no COA will it be possible to overwrite or will i have to do a clean install and use the original com and code keys also how or what would be the best way to go about it
