In particular, the most worrying issue on the list of requirements is in TPM ( Trusted Platform Module ), a coordinated chip on the motherboard and used for passphrase and information encryption; Since it works by the computer, it is more secure than if it was clearly based on programming, and that is the reason why Microsoft currently requires that our PC has TPM to have the option to enter Windows 11.

You can install Windows 11 even if your computer is not compatible

However, not all advanced PCs have TPM ; it's available on the latest workstations, but older PCs and workspaces typically don't have it or it's not enabled. This implies that many advanced PCs are not compatible with Windows 11, and cannot be redesigned regardless of whether the new framework has actually been delivered.

It is conceivable that your PC has TPM and is not aware of it, or that it could enact a "virtual" adaptation on the motherboard; In this article we reveal how to start TPM for Windows 11.

From the exact second Microsoft declared this need, it has garnered relentless analysis from customers who have seen their PCs age unexpectedly. In fact, even Microsoft PCs, for example the first Surface Go, are not compatible with Windows 11.

How to install Windows 11 if your computer is not compatible?

To introduce Windows 11 on a PC that is not optimal for this OS, we need to alter the Windows 10 library to bypass the TPM check.

The means are the following, however, we warn that you should follow them possibly in the event that you know very well what you are doing, since, in such a case that you get in touch with what you should not, you can make the PC stop working

  • Open the registry editor by searching for "registry" in the initial menu.

  • In the window that will open, browse through the folders on the left side to the path: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SYSTEM / Setup / MoSetup".

  • On the right side, right click on "New" and "DWORD Value".

  • Name it "AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU" (without quotes).

  • Double click on the new section you have made, and under "Worth data", enter "1" without quotes.

  • Go to the Windows 11 download page and download the Windows 11 installer. Follow the instructions to get Windows 11 onto your computer.

It is not exceptionally normal for an organization to show clients how to circumvent its own principles. Microsoft might have understood that the compatibility issue is bigger than expected.

However, Microsoft remains consistent on one detail: Customers who use this "trick" may lose support; When starting Windows 11, a window will warn us that we will probably not get updates, although Microsoft has not explained if it will really end this "danger".
