Microsoft has locked Windows Vista Home to only one language

Great!

One of my friends has bouth a new laptop from USA and I want to change the base language of his operating system to Bulgarian. The Bulgarian language is fully support by Microsoft. My surprise was big when I got the “Only language please…” from the Regional Settings language switcher pane.

I want to use one language but I don’t want English I want Bulgarian. Why I cant switch it?

The solution come from Vistalizator. This software has fixed all my troubles. Now I have two languages on my Windows Vista Home (who said that Vista Home dosn’t support two languages :) ?

Someone has made already forum/topic where you can express what you feel working with Microsoft products.
