    Andy Lopez, I think you need Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate. Changing languages for lower versions of windows 7 like starter or Pro, I think is only possible for those that don’t have Windows Distributions in that language. Like for instance in your case you can change from Spanish to Galician, basque language or catalan, but not for English or French or Portuguese
