I installed and deployed MinGW on my Windows machine, renamed it to make, but still couldn’t compile the TiDB code, which left me a bit confused. I wanted to leave a message here and ask the experts. Is it better to use a UNIX environment to compile TiDB with GoLand?

Unix is still better. You can also refer to the official development documentation, which includes deployment from scratch.

In the introduction, the mentioned document is TiDB Development Guide - TiDB Development Guide
