Specs: Windows 7 Home Ed.
I bought a laptop with Windoes 7 Home Edition in German. I wish to install Windows 7 Home in English on the same machine using the same activation key I bought the laptop with. Is the procedure possible? Thanks in advance for your advice.

According to the comparison chart linked below, it appears you need to have Windows 7 ultimate in order to have that feature. I may be wrong.

Go to Control Panel and see if you have a selection for Region and Language.

At any rate, even if you do have that option I suggest you perform a factory restore. Then if you are still in German, change it in Control Panel.

You should not need to activate if using the restore partition or the restore disks.
