    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\Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Basic-zh-cn-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~.cab"
    

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