2.0 out of 5 stars German edition BEWARE, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Pro VUP 32/64bit FPP DE, 3UR-00021 (DE) (DVD-ROM)
Price is ok, but worth paying a few quid more for an English Language version, bought this and with no information in the product description II had no inkling that DE in the title was for Deutschland, the German Language Edition.

I was not worried about the packaging being in german as i believed you could set the language and region on installation, this was not the case, it installed and went through to start up without prompts and I have ended up with a system in German.

No worries thinks I, I can reset the language and region in the settings, ok so far, NOPE you can reset them for a personal profile, and each one must be done individually,

I now have a vaguely workable system, however the start up process is entirely in German still and cannot be altered, I shall try a re-install and hope for the best however beware the description is not clear and unless you realise the DE in the product title means German you will struggle with this product.
