Well, yes, I omitted this option. All because I do not know English and because of that I omitted this record. Thanks for the help.
The problem should be solved, I will find out in a dozen or so minutes and let you know.

Unfortunately, when you mark: preserve data in/home (if upgrading)
still the same.
It may save data during the update, but when the system is first installed, you can not keep the home partition.

If you start from USB (or CD) you can press F2 to select another langauge! The installer is translated to all those languages available.
Would you mind letting us know your langauge you would like to use with MX Linux?

I'm sorry for my mistake again. After setting F2 of my language, I came to the right selection without any problem. Now everything is playing.

Yes, you can choose booting into Polish language by pressing F2.
You do not need to select a timezone by pressing F3.
You can leave timezone to "auto" it will automatically
select the proper timezone Europe/Warsaw (CEST +0200)
for you.
