Hello Iaenm,

As your language is not German but the Windows is in German, it has to get the language pack. In order to get it from Microsoft, it has to connect with the internet.

Be sure that your internet connection is not disconnected. If so, connect your PC to the internet and run the process again. It will download the required language pack automatically.

If that doesn’t work, you have to download it manually. Download it from Microsoft.

Now you should be able to enjoy your PC in English.
