CAUSE
This behavior occurs because you cannot run Windows Setup to upgrade one language version of Windows to a different language version of Windows. When you try to do so, the Setup program of the language version of Windows that you are currently installing displays the error message that is described in the "Symptoms" section of this article.

Not much really, as it says, you cannot use German to upgrade English, check again to see if English is in the add languages section

Run disc clean up, run disc defragmenter, set a restore point

Get an XP CD

Load it, click cancel when it has loaded, click start then my computer, right click the drive with the XP CD in, locate the I386 folder, copy this to a folder you create - C:\I386

When you add the language, browse to the new folder as the source
