how to upgrade

By darrell_fry ·
I have a German version of Windows 98SE and I want to upgrade to an American version of Windows XP but I keep getting a Language error. What would cause this to happen? Would just changing the region settings help me?

You can't upgrade Win to different languages. Never, and risky if you try to force it. Just erase your old OS and fresh install Win XP, unless your XP is only an upgrade version, you need to install full version.Try that or keep your German version for awhile untill you are ready to fresh install.

Goto the Microsoft website and in downloads or upgrades, you should be able to get an english option on your 98, then you should be able to choose this langiuage during upgrade.
I'm going off an old memory here, so I hope you can find it.
Good Luck!
