Installing the Russian version of Windows 10 Home on Xiaomi Mi Gaming Enhanced Edition
The post describes one of the fastest installations of Windows 10 on a Xiaomi Gaming laptop. There will be no password for the input, we will connect to Wifi only after installation. Windows activates itself when there is an Internet connection regardless of the installation language, since The key is sewn into the laptop's UEFI (BIOS).Important!
Included is Microsoft Office in Home and Student 2016 (Word, Exel, PowerPoint). It is recommended to activate it before reinstalling Windows to save the license (on the original Chinese windows version). Activation instruction is locatedhere
. If you already have the Russian version of Windows installed and the key is lost, then you can either usethis restoration instruction
either contact Microsoft support to give you a new key, as written in thispost
The instruction is made on the basis of the manual forXiaomi air
from which unnecessary steps for Gaming models were removed, fresh screenshots of all programs were made and their latest versions were downloaded.
For maximum convenience and ease of use by beginners, some obvious to many moments will still be painted in detail, so that no one has any questions.
Installation checked on 2 laptops with repeated installations, incl. on the installation of the English and Chinese versions.1. Preparatory stage.
This stage can be completed on any computer or laptop that has access to the Internet and which will start the programs from Section 1.2, it is not necessary to do all this at Xiaomi Mi Gaming.
1.1. We get a USB flash drive
, it is better if its volume is from 8 GB. The size of the image of Windows 10 - 3.72GB (3.997 GB).
1.2. Download the Windows 10 distribution.
1.2.1. Downloading the Windows 10 ISO image using the Media Creation Tool
DownloadingMedia Creation Tool
from the Microsoft website or directly from here:MediaCreationTool1809.exe
and create with its help the ISO image of the distribution: run utilities, remove the check mark from "Use recommended settings for this computer" and select: "Language" - the desired system language; "Release" - "Windows 10" (not "Windows 10 Home for One Language"
); "Architecture" - "64-bit (x64)" (visually, see under the spoiler).

It has been experimentally established that other ways of getting the distribution kit (direct download from the Microsoft website, torrent trackers) are not suitable, the license does not "cling".
1.3. Create a bootable USB flash drive
from the ISO image created in section 1.2. To do this, download the program Rufus
from the program site or directly from here: rufus-3.4.exe
and specify the parameters in it as in the screenshot under the spoiler:
2. Installing the Russian version of Windows 10 (other languages вЂ‹вЂ‹are installed in a similar way)
Important! When you open a Windows image, the previously installed settings may fly off. Before clicking on the "Start" button, check all the settings to be as in the screenshot.
Because There are no problems with the activation of Xiaomi Gaming (the key is picked up from the BIOS) and you do not need dancing with VPN and a tambourine, then we will install it in the usual way - from scratch (with formatting the entire C drive). At this stage, it is assumed that you have either activated Microsoft Office in the Chinese version, or you will write to Microsoft support, so that they send you an activation key, or you do not need a licensed Office and we can safely erase all the data from drive C. If you still have there is any necessary data on it, it's time to copy it to a WD screw nearby.
2.1. Important points when installing Windows 10:
- before installation we go in biosF2
, we switch to English and to boot from the flash drive we drag it into the Samsung SSD as well, as we would do in windows (drag & drop), then press F10 to save the changes
- we install the system as a new, not вЂњrecoveryвЂќ, while the partition for installing Windows, as we said above, will be formatted (indicated as a disk with237.9 GB
— Do not delete any partitions, no matter how "extra" they may seem to you!
Anyway, you donвЂ™t get a lot of extra space, but potential problems are easy!
- when choosing a Windows edition, select "Windows 10 Home"
- when the window for entering the serial number appears - click on "I do not have a product key"
- the password to enter in this example is not entered (to speed up the installation)

To enter the BIOS, clickF2
After the reboot, it is not necessary to pull out the flash drive, windows itself will start with the SSD.
Now we connect to the Internet and check that the Windows 10 Home license has been activated. Within 10-20 minutes from the moment of the first start and in the presence of the Internet, Windows itself will install the basic drivers on devices from Intel, Realtek and Xiaomi camera. It will also be possible to adjust the screen brightness through the Fn keys.
