Hey Redmibook Users!

I know you are all frustrated to format your chinese Windows 10 single language Simplified Chinese version that came pre installed to your unit. I have previously made a full tutorial on how to make it into english on the Mi Notebook Pro review and making it licensed.

Using the same method, I encountered unable to format the hdd due to encryption of bitlocker, this is a security to prevent your data from being hacked, tho its no easy task to unlock it.

All you need to do is just go to the windows taskbar, type in BITLOCKER and just follow these photos and it will be decrypted, and you can continue formatting your hard drive for installing a new copy of windows 10 home to your laptop.

You will need to enter the gear after typing in BITLOCKER then press 打开 to continue decrypting it.

I installed an English Windows version on my Redmibook 14 using Media Creator. Now I would have to install new drivers (e.g., network adapter is not recognized). But I can only find drivers for Intel models, while I have a Ryzen7 and Radeon graphics.
Any hints where I could find the drivers?
