    Hi Pepe,

    Please open CMD as administrator and run the command Dism /online /Add-Package /PackagePath:"<FilePath>\<PackageName>.cab" to add FODs. For example:

    Dism /online /Add-Package /PackagePath:"C:\users\Administrator\Desktop\"

    Use your own file path and the cab package you downloaded. The Language and Optional Features ISO can be downloaded here.

    Refer to this link for more details

    Best Regards,

    Ian Xue
