- All OS'es you tried (from Windows Vista to Windows 10 and all Linux distro's)? Or just one? What?
- Change to French from what?
- What OS in what language is currently on the hard disk? Did you format as part of the install?
- Can you change it back to English?

I want to install windows 8 but when I insert my installation media, the setup window comes and am asked to select a language for the installation to begin but when I select English, it scrolls back to French.

- I see not a single reason to prefer Windows 8 to Windows 10. On the contrary. Why do you want that?
- If it happens also after you erased the hard disk (or on a new hard disk if you don't want to erase it, just in case you would regret that later), it's a question for Microsoft why your official Windows 8 disk or download doesn't accept English.
