Windows 11 was launched last Monday. Microsoft’s new operating system introduces numerous changes inside and out, with new interface and performance improvements. However, not all computers can install it, as there is a multitude of hardware that is not natively compatible with Microsoft’s demanding minimum requirements. However, you can skip it very easily with this trick.
Microsoft announced that it was going to be mandatory to have an Intel Core 8th generation processor or an AMD Ryzen 2000 to be able to install Windows 11. In addition, it was mandatory to be able to activate Secure Boot and to have a motherboard with a TPM 2.0 module, either integrated or connected to the motherboard in a specific connector that many of them have.
During this summer, Windows 11 for Insiders has been available for all computers without hardware limitations. Microsoft said all along that this was not going to be the case after the release of the final version. However, a few weeks earlier they said they had changed their mind, and anyone would be able to install Windows 11 on their computer. The problem was that, if you did not have a compatible computer, you were not going to receive security updates.
Two Tricks To Install Windows 11
And so it has been in the final version. By means of the ISO it is possible to force the installation of Windows 11 in any computer. To do this, just do the normal installation, and as soon as it says that we do not have a compatible computer, press Shift + F10 and type regedit. Inside the Windows Registry, we go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM and there to Setup, and we create three new keys with value 1: BypassTPMCheck, BypassRAMCheck and BypassSecureBootCheck.
After doing this, we will be able to continue the installation as if nothing happened. The problem can come later, or even if we try to upgrade from a previous version, where Windows 11 blocks all types of updates. For this, Microsoft has even created an official help page in which it guides us to skip the requirement of TPM 2.0 or a specific processor model.
To do this, we have to go to regedit, and there go to the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEM, Setup and then MoSetup. In that section we have to create a DWORD called AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU, and assign it the value 1.
After this, restart the computer, and any computer with TPM 1.2 or later will be able to install Windows 11 and receive updates on it. TPM 1.2 was released in March 2011, so virtually all Intel Core computers can run Windows 11 without any problem.
Better To Continue Using Windows 10 On Unsupported PCs
This is important, since on October 14, 2025, Windows 10 will stop receiving security updates, and it will be mandatory to use Windows 11 if we want to be protected against vulnerabilities. With this trick, we will be able to update without worries to this new version. If your PC is not compatible, it is better to continue using Windows 10 until 2025, and then upgrade to Windows 11 or change your computer.
The launch of Windows 11 has had some compatibility and performance problems, but surprisingly there have been no serious bugs to report. Let’s hope that Windows 11 will stop Microsoft from releasing buggy updates.
