|I did a search on google for "Windows XP OEM French", I found an iso image of 666 megabytes ( :o ). It had SP2 slipstreamed. It was French ( france ), but I change the keyboard once installed and it worked perfectly.|
If you have the same issue as me, when looking for an iso, the following phrases are BAD, they indicate you'll get a pirated copy that won't work :
* "With activation"
* "No activation"
Hope this helps someone else.
I don't like Microsoft, and I only use Linux at home, but every so often I have to reinstall Windows for some poor unfortunate soul, and since Microsoft says I have to buy a new copy, this is the only reasonable way to get the work done.
If you have a computer with a sticker on it, you want the OEM version NOT corporate or retail.
If only Windows was as easy as Linux.
