    Looking for help, Not to sure where to start , LOL though i think here might be a good one . I need to create a Windows 10 install that when i run my answer file the end user will get a option to have the computer in french or English. Language packs are not the way to go since they dont seem to be full french or English depending on which version i installed along with this i need office 2010 to translate to the language chosen again language pack dont do a full migration some components stil remain in the wrong language . My thinking is i need a pre boot menu for french or eenglish that will restore the system from 2 diffrent recovery images one in each language ... not to sure.:confused:

    Help!!!!!!!

    What i need to do is make a install that when i run my answer file the first boot will give me the option of french or English for my os( language packs are not the answer they are not fully the desired language). Plus i need to have office 2010 do the same when a language is shown it will come up in the correct language . Any advice or points in the right direction would be greatly apprecated Thanks :cool:

    An answer file is actually meant to decide automatically what you want to be done during install.

    Why don't you just export the needed indexes (fr and english) into one, during initial setup you can select you interface language and at edition selection windows you choose either the fr or the en edition (give the indexes correct names so you know what is what.

    Sorry i don't want to irritate you, Tito, but LP's he didn't want to use because they don't translate the whole windows, only on 7 it does.

    Besides the inbox UWP apps, everything is translated AFAIK. There is also another method proposed by a member (can't recall it ATM) to overcome that limitation too.

    What he could try is to integrate the en-us or en-gb LP's in the French iso, then the french edition will be totally french and the en-us or en-gb should be totally en-us or en-gb.

    I've discussed this many times with abbodi1406 :)

    And like usual (or often), a newbie ask a question and then disappear!
