    Hi all.
    I'm Polish, so sorry in advance for my bad English.
    I have Windows 7 Pro x64 in polish (pl_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676944) and the problem is that Windows Boot Manager is not in my language. How can I fix it? I have tried to run cmd as admin:
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} locale pl-PL
    bcdedit /set {current} locale pl-PL
    bcdboot c:\windows /l pl-PL
    but I still see the "Starting Windows" text not in polish, obviously.
    My laptop is a Lenovo z580 with UEFI boot on. It has the worst BIOS I've ever seen: in boot priority there is Windows Boot Manager at 1st place but it cannot be deleted. Should I swith to AHCI?
    Please help me.

    You wrote that you tried:
    bcdboot c:\windows /l pl-PL
    try
    bcdboot c:\windows /l pl-pl

    Yes I've tried that and 1 minute ago I did it again but nothing happened.
    It must be my s**tty BIOS, because I've flashed it to a newer version. But even before flashing it was impossible to delete entries from boot priority order. I have no idea on what to do.
