Installing Windows 10 in Polish on Xiaomi Notebook Air / Pro + drivers.

Windows in Polish on xiaomi laptops

Xiaomi laptops are a good alternative to various "plastic" Acer, Lenovo and others. The disadvantage of the laptops with the Mi logo is the Chinese operating system, but you can easily install the "usable" version, in other words, in Polish.

What do you need?

  • Pendrive at least 8GB

The whole myk is that you need to create a booted pendrive.

Theoretically, the whole thing should be able to do it through a special Windows application to create a pendrive boot, but in the case of Microsoft it would be too easy. I tried to do this 10x, each time I received an error, so first you need to configure the pendrive in the terminal as bootable.

Place the pendrive in the USB port of the laptop and click the Windows key on the keyboard, then type: cmd

In the newly opened window, enter: diskpart

The next window will open. In which we enter: list disk

The terminal will display a list of data carriers connected to the computer. After the amount of memory, you can see which memory stick from the times. In my case it is a disk with the 1 number, in order to select this drive, enter the command: select disk 1

Disk number one has been selected. Now we have to enter the following commands and confirm each time with the server:

create partition primary

format fs = fat32 quick

A ready, bootable pendrive has been created.

Teaz can go to the step from which theoretically we could start, but Microsoft's mistakes about which I wrote at the beginning of the entry meant that my attempts always ended in failure.

We download the Microsoft tool "Windows 10 USB tool" for this purpose go to the site Microsoft.

Then follow the arrows in the pictures below.

The application will download Windows 10 and copy it on a pendrive, it will take about 10 minutes.

And it's on! We already have a system on a pendrive, you can install. Restart the computer and press the F2 on the keyboard several times to start the BIOS.

The last step is to press "Save and Exite" in the lower right corner or press F10. We confirm the changes and the computer will restart.

After correct installation of the system, some drivers will be missing.
