I just got my Desire S couple days ago from Singapore but from what I understand, it has an Indian IMEI and only the Indian English available for setup.

Is it possible to flash one of the European ROMs on the device? My build number is 1.31.720.2

Thanks for the links. So, what exactly do I do after creating the goldcard? How do I downgrade?

Or Once you have ran the RUU you will find a PG***.zip file in temp folder, copy that to your SD-Card and boot into bootloader and hopefully it should auto detect it.

I created the gold card but when I try to flash the 1.28.401.1 european rom over the current 1.31.720.2 rom that I have on this phone, I get the following error.
