Install Windows 11 On Unsupported Hardware – At Your Own Risk


Install Windows 11 On Unsupported Hardware – At Your Own Risk
Microsoft are warning people not to install windows 11 on unsupported pc with the follow message. You can install windows 11 on unsupported pc, but don’t, its not worth it. You won’t receive security updates.

“This PC doesn’t meet the minimum system requirements for running Windows 11 – these requirements help ensure a more reliable and higher quality experience. Installing Windows 11 on this PC is not recommended and may result in compatibility issues,” the agreement states.

“If you you proceed with installing Windows 11, your PC will no longer be supported and won’t be entitled to receive updates. Damages to your PC due to lack of compatibility aren’t covered under the manufacturer warranty. By selecting Accept, you are acknowledging that you read and understand this statement.”

  1. MS has always been sensitive about bad publicity of 'bugs' and security holes. Much more likely they will continue to patch and support any running 11, hardware minimums regardless.
    They won't even make it particularly difficult to get updates as their 'reputation' will be at risk and most computer users will just hear "Windows 11 is bad/unsafe" without caring about the "because it was 'modified' to work on old hardware."
    The more that switch to 11 on old hardware, the more likely MS will HAVE TO fully support it.

  2. Updates are separated into five different categories: feature updates, quality updates, driver updates, definition updates and other updates.
    There's no sign they're blocking the definition updates for Microsoft Defender since I got one just today. There haven't been new feature updates since the official release except for those in the IP program, and they kicked out incompatible computers from that program. Quality updates are those "cumulative updates" and seem to be available to those with incompatible systems. Incompatible computers could get those updates when the general public gets them. Driver updates are a matter of individual's computers and aren't likely to be blocked. It's too early to say if any updates are going to be blocked, but it doesn't seem so far as if anything is being blocked. It would seem to be feature updates and possibly quality updates that would get blocked.

  3. Windows isn't going to block unsupported hardware, it's just that they won't be putting out updates that unsupported hardware might need. You really can't go by what Microsoft says since they often put out mistaken statements about their own software. Those making the statements often don't understand how Windows actually works and they tend to listen to their own PR too much. Their tech support is useless for any problem that doesn't have an obvious solution.

  4. windows 7 was just fine for me,but made windows 10 work on my pc,now they will make people buy new pc,i will stay with windows 10 long as i can then buy new pc,that will be fine with me.

  5. The way I see it to use W11, MS want everyone to throw their perfectly useable oldish laptops into landfill and buy a new W11 laptop. How carbon neutral of them.

  6. Just install Linux. Plus you can make it your own. Everything from Mac os style through and through or windows style. Even futuristic sci fi styles too. Just try it out. It's built for speed security and being supported on every machine.

  7. Microsoft has found the gateway to enforce the forced purchase of components. 2-3-9 lines of code and the result is: IT DOESN'T WORK, go and buy ONE that works. Consumer society, especially now that the crisis of components and aberrant prices have blown up. For years, computers worked well without SECURE BOOT or TPM. Now you say it's the rewritten BIBLE. :))

  8. Even if Microsoft decides to block updates someone will find a workaround. Just like the old Macs. Your Macintosh isn't compatible for the newer OS version and people found a way around it.

  9. The thing is, I could install windows 11 on my PC which run on intel core i5 4th gen processor. I installed it using bootable usb with the completely original iso image from microsoft website without any workaround on it. Just download the iso, flash it to usb flashdrive and install, without any warning about compatibility. But my processor was not the supported one tho, it is 4th gen. How is that?

    But the thing I did is not upgrading tho, I just install the new win 11 os on my PC, means that dual boot. My previous win 10 also still there in my pc (this pc i am using right now) And I'm writing this comment from win 11.

  10. Hello man i see that ur really good with IT and i might have a virus on my computer its a notepad .txt and i cant remove it i dont know what to do and i cant force delete im really worried counting on ur help!!!

  11. Microsoft will eventually support the "unsupported" hardware. Reason? Money. This is where the OS subscription model comes into play. It's been in the works for quite some time now.

  12. Goes without saying it’s an unsupported installation, but they are not going to stop security updates. Maybe feature updates could get blocked, but blocking security updates has potential to cause wider spread issues.

  13. Frankly I think Microsoft have shot themselves in the foot on this. I have a ryzen PC, it's not old yet i have to turn secure boot on and TPM? Fine TPM was easy but trying to turn on Secure boot is a pain in the arse. Who wants to spend half an hour in Bios trying to turn this shit on. Not me and probably not the average PC user. So Microsoft thanks for this NOT.

  14. They did the same on Windows 8.1 with unsupported CPU's and some one made a patch that removed some MS updates that let you get updates, I currently run 3 Windows 8.1 Computers on 6th gen cpu's without problems. They won't be able to stop Updates in Windows 11, someone will fix it or there will be a reg hack.. i just don't see the need to upgrade to Win 11, this OS is far from being finished..
