Windows 11 on Unsupported PC
Microsoft announced their newest version of Windows which is Windows 11 which is officially announced on June 24th and the first Windows 11 preview build became available to users on June 28th. Besides having a new look and feel, it also comes with some (very) recent minimum hardware requirements like TPM, 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SOC), 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage, UEFI, Secure Boot capable, and DirectX 12/WDDM 2. x to run.
The minimum requirements however to be able to upgrade to Windows 11 are stricter and not all hardware can meet these requirements. “Your PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11,” says the Microsoft warning when any device does not support Windows 11.
You can check your system compatibility with Microsoft's updated PC Health Check tool. Requirements include sufficient RAM and storage, a compatible CPU, the most important TPM 2.0, and with it the Secure Boot feature.
One of the most common requirements for users is TPM 2.0 technology, and it is mandatory to activate this setting by the BIOS on supported systems. Users who do not meet these requirements will not be able to see an upgrade screen on Windows Update. Microsoft recommends that you stay with Windows 10 in this situation, but you can also choose the clean boot route via ISO files.
Here "Damage to your PC due to lack of compatibility is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty." A warning like this will appear, but as long as you accept the terms, Windows 11 will be installed on your computer.
There is one more important warning. If your system does not meet the requirements, Microsoft reserves the right to stop updates to your PC. For example, you are using an unsupported Core i7 7700K processor or TPM 2.0 is not active in your system. Whatever the case, you may not receive security and feature updates.
