    Yes only en-US is server language pack others are client ones.

    Had to replace zh-TW entries in sessions.xml to en-US and there was no Windows\servicing\Editions\ProfessionalEdition.xml in AzureStackHCI_17784.1408_EN-US install.wim, so copied it from Windows 10 1809 Pro image.

    The en-US server language pack gets installed properly, the issue is before that when you do the /apply-unattend:sxs\1.xml, it completes 100% and then gives the error.

    R1: Had to replace zh-TW entries in sessions.xml to en-US.
    A: Yes, my bad. Thanks.

    R2: there was no Windows\servicing\Editions\ProfessionalEdition.xml in AzureStackHCI_17784.1408_EN-US install.wim, so copied it from Windows 10 1809 Pro image.
    A: ProfessionalEdition.xml etc. are from Microsoft-Windows-Editions-Professional-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.17784.1068.

    R3: The en-US server language pack gets installed properly, the issue is before that when you do the /apply-unattend:sxs\1.xml, it completes 100% and then gives the error.
    A:
    a. It is Server language pack, no wonder OK.
    b. The error is caused by unknown reasons. Not all languages cab be successfully converted.

    No. The LCU is for ServerAzureStackHCICor and ServerTurbineCor only. Unlike 17763.1 for both Client and Server.

    I found Core. It is caused by bad microsoft-windows-editionpack-core-package.esd. This thread's way won't work.

    And Pro for some languages, even with full original packages.

    PS.
    Its components are alright, but it just won't be accepted by the xml command.

    Q: Why NOT each language of a same 17784.1068 edition is possible to be successfully created by this thread's Re-Construction way?
    A: The issue is caused by AzureStackHCI image.

    Solution: Use zh-TW AzureStackHCI image as source image.

    PS.
    You need to do 2 things:
    1. Remove zh-TW and zh-HK LanguageFeatures packages and zh-TW WinRE.wim
    2. Add LanguageFeatures packages and WinRE.wim of your language (WinRE.wim can be of 17763.1 onwards)

    PS.
    Official en-US Client language pack is not available.

    en-US Professional for example
    Code:
    
    ================================================================================================
    Converting 17784.1068 zh-TW ServerAzureStackHCICor to en-US Professional amd64

    Current Edition : Professional (RET)
    
    Removing zh-TW and zh-HK LanguageFeatures packages

    Resetting base
    
    Unmounting image

    Welcome. Very great!

    But excuse me asking you HOW could Server's LCU support Client?

    Hey, this tells that it did not work at all:
    Code:
    D:\Dism /image:mount /get-packages /format:table
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.19041.572
    
    Image Version: 10.0.17784.1068
    
    And if you looked into C:\Windows\servicing\Version, well, it should still be 10.0.17784.1068.

    Am I right? (I think so)

    For .NET CU captured it from server image and is gets installed directly.

    For SSU and CU, added the supported edition info from captured .NET CU update.mum and then it gets installed but the LCU didn't change the build no, may be it just updated possible components.

    vNEXT is getting harder for users to slim down, ATM, Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package.

    Previously, One sub-pakage to One language package.
    Now, One primary-package (with individual removable sub-packages. Good, but) to all non-corresponding language packages.

    Under such cases, when you delete one sub-package, which language pack to delete? No.
