Changing OS

  eddie937 16:32 06 Nov 2008

I have just bought a new samsung NC10 Mini notebook and it has a German operating system on it. Is there anyway of changing the operating system to English?

Thanks in advance

Having bought it new, could you not ask the Vendor for an English version? Otherwise, I think it would involve buying an English version of the OS on dvd/cd to install, after re-formatting the drive.

It never crossed my mind about asking! Its Windows xp with no cd/dvd drive. Is there anyway of attaching a cd/dvd drive to it?

You can use a USB connection to an external CD drive I expect - check the BIOS allows this though.
