Bypass Requirements To Upgrade To Windows 11

Microsoft recommends not to install Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the minimum requirements Windows 11 system requirements.

Windows11 Review

 If you choose to upgrade to Windows 11 on a device that does not meet these requirements, you must acknowledge that you understand the potential risks.

You can then.. create the following registry key values.. and bypass the TPM check

2.0 >> ( at least TPM 1.2 required)

Generation Albroosissour the Processor Generation .. family model CPU

4. If you experience problems after you upgrade to Windows 11 and your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements, we recommend that you refer to Windows 10 ,

select Start> Settings> System> Recovery> Go Back
Start> Settings > System > Recovery > Go back.

This option is only available for 10 days after the upgrade, after which the files required to perform this function will be removed to free up disk space on your device

Recently, Microsoft shared the following support article in which the company mentioned that users with TPM 1.2, if like, can upgrade to Windows 11 . For this, they have to edit registry on your existing system or setup

This topic is not to propose a new way to bypass (there are ways to bypass more demands), but to show that it is provided by Microsoft itself

.. and this entails what follows

1- According to the current (final) requirements of Microsoft announced for Windows 11.. The modern devices that will be allowed (supported) will be those that have been produced from a year and a half to two years at most from now.

2- But according to this link (after understanding the risks and agreeing to them), devices from 2012 (or shortly before 2011, for example) will be allowed to install Windows 11,

noting that TPM 1.2 was released in 2012.. But hardware companies from computers and boards may have added equipment for the feature shortly before it from 2011, for example, for the possibility of the future Upgrade of hardware when it appears later???

in another meaningMicrosoft allowed the installation of Windows 11 for devices that achieve (partially the Hard Floor ) in the old requirements of Windows 11 .. and the most important thing in it is the presence of TPM 1.2

3-and therefore this will entail allowing the installation .. to allow the update of devices that have partial compatibility ( Hard). Floor )

with noting that the update content may differ between modern compatible devices and old ones .. according to the update requirements of the hardware

4- Devices that do not meet the minimum requirements ( Hard Floor ) .. they are not allowed to install Windows 11 (this is implied)

and Therefore (may) it is not allowed to update .. If Microsoft uses verification of hardware before choosing the appropriate update??? This is unknown

5- Microsoft may make other concessions (but I do not expect that) .. it just reverted to the old original requirements (implicitly .. indirectly) the

Old requirements for Windows 11:

- Microsoft is still using the old requirements for Windows 11 in an indirect and even twisted way Now

.. this appeared clearly through the divisions of devices (hardware) in the channels of Windows Insider (as in the picture below from the Microsoft website)
.. and the Microsoft support page on the topic here

- the old requirements for Windows 11 are divided into two parts

Hard Floor .. and the most important What is included in TPM 1.2 and Secure Boot .. and the rest of the normal requirements .. ( compulsory - minimum requirements)

Soft Floor .. and it includes only two items, namely .. Existence TPM 2.0 .. and specifying the processor family and generation .. ( not mandatory - represents the final current specification for requirements after modification)

- therefore .. devices that do not meet the minimum requirements ( Hard Floor ) .. are not allowed to install Windows 11 (this is implied)

Hard Floor – or Mandatory – Requirements
  • CPU: Core >= 2 and Speed >= 1 GHz
  • System Memory: TotalPhysicalRam >= 4 GB
  • Storage: 64 GB
  • System firmware : UEFI, Secure Boot capable
  • Security: TPM Version >= 1.2 and SecureBootCapable = True
  • Smode: Smode is false, or Smode is true and C_ossku in (0x65, 0x64, 0x63, 0x6D, 0x6F, 0x73, 0x74, 0x71)

Soft Floor Requirements
  • Security: TPMVersion >= 2.0
  • CPU Generation


Update: Microsoft has updated the system requirements documentation to remove the soft floor specifications. It adds that the changes were made to "correct the guidance around the TPM requirements for Windows 11

It sounds like for older devices, regardless of the CPU, as long as they meet the 'hard floor' requirement (including TPM 1.2), they can still get Windows 11. So, yeah, lots of wiggle room.

- What Microsoft is still using the old requirements for Windows 11 indirectly and twisted so far

.. and it appeared clearly through the divisions of hardware (hardware) in the channels of Windows Insider

Note Frodo

(Paraphrase Twisted requirements .. to avoid referring to the old requirements of Windows 11)

1- Green >>
Meeting Windows 11 Hardware Requirements,
meaning that the full requirements are met >> Soft Floor + Hard Floor

2- Yellow >> NOT Meeting Windows 11 Hardware Requirements .. But Meeting minimum requirements, meaning that the requirements of the Hard Floor are met .. and the requirements of the Soft Floor are not met

3- Red color >>
NOT Meeting minimum requirements
meaning that none of the requirements are met, either .. Soft Floor or Hard Floor

Hardware divisions in Windows Insider channels (from Microsoft website) The
image clearly shows the use of the old requirements for Windows 11 (Hard Floor) - Soft Floor) in the classification of devices (hardware) on the channels
