The default BIOS options are correct. In order to bring the UEFI Boot screen selection, tap the Esc key, and using the right arrow key, go to the last page, then select the desired option in the Boot Override section. The device does not contain any USB Type-A port, use a USB-C dock in order to plug in the Flash Memory via USB. The device supports booting from SD cards via an USB-C Dock.


This article or section needs expansion.

Reason: Simply mention what parts are supported, instead of having unnecessary temporal anchors that will need eventual maintenance. (Discuss in Talk:Chuwi MiniBook X (2023))

fwupd supports parts on this device, though, as of writing, no updates were provided.

Screen rotation

Upon exiting the BIOS the device screen is rotated counter-clockwise. In order to correct that, use the fbcon=rotate:1 kernel parameter.

One may change the configuration e.g. in GNOME settings, see GDM#Setup default monitor settings to get GDM to use those settings.

Garbled screen on resume

Sometimes, when using particular kernels, built-in screen looks like it was physically damaged when coming out of shallow sleep. Workaround: Tap the sleep button, then wake the computer using the built-in keyboard. It should start working again.

Other issues

USB-C Charging

The device has two USB Type-C ports on the right hand side. One of the ports is labelled as power input. The second one is not. The first port supports original packaged charger. The second one supports charging via compatible USB-C Dock.

USB 3.0/DisplayLink evdi drivers

In order to support some external USB-C Docks with external displays plugged-in, one may need DisplayLink driver.
