How can I change the Startup Manager's display language in Windows 8 Pro? I have been told by Microsoft that it cannot be done without reinstalling with an version with the correct language. Is this correct, or is there an alternate solution?

What do you mean by 'Startup Manager' ? – Jasjeev Singh Feb 15 '13 at 17:02
The start up screen where you can choose to repair your copy for example. I think you hit F10 to enter it. I don't really know the correct name for it. When my installation malfunctioned it started automatically during start up but it was in the Norwegian language (i bought it in Norway but aren't speaking Norwegian). – Benny Kristiansson Feb 18 '13 at 13:14
Anyone out there who has the knowledge? – Benny Kristiansson Mar 8 '13 at 13:15
