    Hi,

    I bought a laptop that didnt offer a choice to upgrade my version to normal Win 8 where I can install language packs.

    May I know if there is a way to still install other languages? I've found the lp.cab file but I can't install it using lpksetup

    Thanks

    On SL versions you can not add an other language ;)

    Hi, yes the languages I was looking for are there. So these are basically cracked versions of windows that I need to download?

    What happens to my previous W8SL then? Do I have to install the cracked win8 in a new partition?

    Sorry for being a newb

    These are safe and real versions, nothing to see with crack or whatever you call that. If you follow the links provided by Tito, you'll make a media to convert the sl version in the language you need, and yes you have to reinstall with the new media. ;)
