Microsoft explains how to install Windows 11 on some unsupported computers

This week Microsoft started distributing Windows 11. As you know, the installation of a new software platform requires that the device used meets a number of requirements. If your computer does not meet them, then do not rush to get upset, because the developers from Microsoft themselves told about the method that will allow you to install the operating system on incompatible devices.

One of the common reasons for incompatibility is the requirement for the Trusted Platform Module 2.0. The TPM can be disabled in the BIOS, but older computers simply don’t have it. In terms of supported processors, Intel and AMD also have clear limitations that could hinder the installation of Windows 11. Fortunately, Microsoft does not seem to be going too far to prevent users of officially unsupported computers from interacting with the new OS.

The fact is that this week on the Microsoft support site article appeareddedicated to how to install Windows 11. In it, the developers described different options for installing a new OS, and also revealed a way to boot the platform on unsupported computers. It turned out that for this it is enough to change just one registry parameter, as described in the instructions in the screenshot above and shown below.

After making the appropriate adjustments, Windows 11 installation will not check for a working TPM 2.0 and a supported processor. However, this method requires TPM 1.2 to be installed. Microsoft also reminds that it is not recommended to install Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the minimum system requirements, and the user, by doing this, acknowledges and understands the possible risks.
