    Default Windows 11

    I just acquired a not so old PC (i5-4670, 8GB RAM) which has got Win10 Pro ver 21H1 installed.

    Would like to try out Windows 11 on this spare computer. Where can I download the install files, preferably on USB stick.?

    You reckon my specs are OK for the new OS?

    Is it FREE or I need to pay or the install file?

    There is no Official ISO or downloads yet unless you have a computer that is linked to the insider Program.

    You can still get the insider version by using UUP Dump https://uupdump.net/ (currently 2nd down) Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.22000.100 (co_release) amd64

    Follow your nose ( on the left) that will walk you though, then it downloads a zipped file with all the bits. extract the Files to a Folder, double click the uup_download_windows.cmd Then again wait -- it takes a while but downloads all the Parts and makes the ISO, It will tell you to press 0 to exit once its finished then you can drop the ISO to a USB. Mount the ISO and double click the setup.exe ( doing a in place upgrade - NOT fresh install)

    Keep in mind that the components on the computer may not work. you may have to change the appraiserres. dll in the W11 ISO for one from a Windows 10, then do a in place upgrade from W10. (look it up on google).

    Before doing anything run Whynotwin11 https://www.notebookcheck.net/WhyNot....548201.0.html

    Officially the CPU is to Old / not supported, But using the above method it may still install, done it on 3 different Computers that are " not fully compatible"

    I reckon yes
    MS says no

    It probably wont be compatible with the Official Release version .
    may be OK for playing around with on pre-release version , until(if) MS decides to tighten things up as we get closer to official release day.

    Might seem not so old to you but that is an 8 year old cpu design (launch date Q2 2013). Still perfectly capable for most people but why not just stick with windows 10 and save the headaches.

    To me, it's just like yesterday!

    Just like to 'play' with it, when I still can ...
