Windows 7 upgrade failed with error 0x80004005

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I was upgrading my operating system to Windows 7 when I got this error message. 

I may have missed setting up the language but when I checked my Region and Languages settings it says English. 

Then I went to Keyboards and Languages tab and click on the How can I install additional languages? 

I tried to follow what’s in the Help section, but I got more confused. 

Can someone help ASAP? 


Install Windows

                    Windows could not determine the language to use for setup.Error code: 0x80004005

In your image, it seems that the message box came from a windows XP operating system.

This is impossible to upgrade, no windows XP can be directly converted to window 7.

This can only be through Vista or lower versions of Windows 7.

Solution 1: Reformat you system and Install (must do)

You can't do anything here but rather backup your files. Start installation process by selecting Custom and reformat your disk then install the windows 7 operating system. That is the only way to install your window 7 coming from an XP operated system.

Solution 2: Dual Boot (optional)

You can also try dual booting with the windows XP and 7 because you might want to experience Window 7 again in the days to come, but this is only an optional solution, but I think you should follow the solution given above.
