Windows 11 can be installed on most PCs, but…

Windows 11 can be installed on most PCs but with one important restriction. At we give you the details.

Microsoft has decided to relax their policies and limitations to install Windows 11 and achieve greater reach of the operating system on millions of PCs, which is why they have updated their list of processors compatible with W11. The restrictions we already knew will be maintained at the commercial level and at the home level, the generation of the CPU will not matter as long as it has the minimum requirements:

  • 1 GHz (64-bit) processor with two or more cores.
  • 4 GB of RAM.
  • 64 GB of storage.

Why TPM?

Microsoft wants to push Windows towards modern DCH drivers and modern security with Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support and Virtualization-Based Security (VBS) to improve security, compatibility and reliability aspects of Windows 11.

Windows 11 without updating from Windows 10 – Windows 11 will be able to be installed on most PCs

The Redmond-based company recommends W11 for new PCs, which is a bit of a pain in stating that 8th Gen Intel processors and later are officially supported.

However, when the final version of Windows 11 is released, the the restriction will only apply when installing the operating system upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 via Windows Update.

This means that people with older machines that don’t officially pass the W11 upgrade test will be able to download the Windows 11 ISO and install the operating system manually at their own risk, as the company cannot guarantee driver compatibility and overall system reliability.

Rumor has it that systems updated this way don’t receive Windows updates, even security updates.

amd in trouble

Microsoft won’t officially support any Zen 1 processors, despite recent testing. “After carefully analyzing the first generation of AMD Zen processors in partnership with AMD, we have come to the conclusion together that there are no additions to the list of supported processors.”

According to Microsoft, it says devices that don’t meet the minimum hardware requirements “had 52% more kernel-mode failures” while devices that meet the official minimum specs “had a crash-free experience of 99.8 %”,

New version of PC Health Check

Microsoft now plans to update its PC Health Check app to include new supported Intel processors and provide much more clarity on why your PC might not be able to officially update. The new checker app will tell Windows users whether they just need to enable Secure Boot or TPM 2.0 to update, which is much better than the unsupported message.
