Obtaining english version in lieu of german version

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question but I couldn't find a
    better alternative. The facts - I've been given an Acer Laptop with Win XP
    Tablet ed. preloaded, by a relative. The problem here is that this relative
    lives in Germany and so everything in the UI is in german. I can work with
    the german keyboard but would like to have the english version of the OS. How
    do I go about this? Who would be a good person to contact?
    Incidentally, I'm in india, and it is not very feasible to contact the
    original supplier in Germany. Any suggestions would be really great.

    The Windows XP/Tablet PC Edition is not available to the public for
    installation on a Tablet PC other than through the original equipment
    manufacturer (OEM). If you cannot contact the manufacturer you'll basically
    stuck. Since you're not the original owner, the burden falls on whoever
    bought the machine originally.
