Users of computers that do not satisfy the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11 will be able to install the new operating system as well, according to Microsoft.
The free rollout of Windows 11 began on Tuesday and will last until mid.2022 for all qualifying teams.
Microsoft needs a 64.bit CPU with at least 1GHz and two or more cores, as well as 4GB of RAM and a 64GB or larger internal storage space.
A high.definition monitor with a resolution of 720 pixels and a diagonal size greater than 9 inches is also required, as well as UEFI firmware with Secure Boot, Trusted Platform Module (version 2.0), DirectX 12 compatibility, and a high.definition monitor with a resolution of 720 pixels and a diagonal size greater than 9 inches.According to Microsoft, customers with equipment that does not meet the minimum requirements will be able to install Windows 11 on an official basis, however performance is not assured, as stated in a support article.
This procedure, which necessitates the manual production of Windows 11 installation discs, may be carried out on machines with any ‘hardware,’ with the sole condition that they utilize a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) of at least version 1.2, rather to the system’s suggested 2.0.To begin, Microsoft suggests backing up all data and programs on your Windows 10 device, since a clean installation of the new system is recommended.To avoid operational difficulties, pick ‘build new tool’ from the Windows download page and follow Microsoft’s instructions to the letter.
This requires changing key registry settings and bypassing TPM 2.0 verification, processor, and model, which is only recommended if technical help is available.
Users may either start Setup while Windows 10 is running or load media from Start (Setup), which will reset the device.
