comment Windows XP: Cannot activate East Asian language support
My problem is that I cannot even start the process of installing the files because the checkbox is disabled. The model is an Asus Eee PC 904HD.

comment Windows XP: Cannot activate East Asian language support
How could that possibly help? My problem is not that configuration changes I've made aren't having an effect, the problem is that the checkbox I need to check is deactivated / grayed out.

comment What's the best software for geotagging photos and publishing them?
I've described the features I'm looking for, and I'm open to suggestions, being relatively inexperienced and not knowing exactly what features are particularly important or useful.

No luck. However, an itneresting detail is that the properties dialog still shows the two separate "views" of the data partition as drives E: and P:
