    I have been comparing the BETA W11 Pro with the current released version, and there are a few mods to it:-
    1] You can no longer disable 'auto update' in 'Group Policy' --- this sucks!
    2] They have changed the settings menu -- messy & confusing.
    3] The rounded corners are now almost gone. -- I like the fully rounded corners.
    Otherwise it appears to be the same, even got Windows 7 Backup in it, what for I can't imagine! Still hasn't got a decent file manager, Stay on Top command, or Office suite.

    See the issues with Windows 11 are ticking up

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...registry-keys/

    Upgraded my new build to 11 and straight off and ran into the two step Context Menu (Copy and Paste),there is a Registry hack for getting this to show https://www.howtogeek.com/759559/how...on-windows-11/

    Will not be updating my Daily till seeing more fixes and any other incompatibilities show up

    Many people don't actually notice all the copy/paste/cut /rename etc are in plain site In Fact its quite good, if you right click, copy/cut something then only option is paste.

    To carry on from last nights reply

    Did two Older computers, both said not capable. One laptop One Desktop.

    1. (laptop) Running from within Windows 10 - had to run both the TPM .bat files in the package, then it installed fine using in place upgrade using the ISO created by the same Download/File ( used the burn to USB to create the media)

    2. (Desktop) Again a Windows 10, but this time didn't need the TPM .Bat files. Only thing I did different was when it gets to the point at the start saying about checking for updates, if you click on the show more options ( think thats what it says) you can tell it not to check for updates 1st. Installed fine.

    Below is the whynot 11 screen report, originally Windows 10, along with the W11 Installed. ( yeah OK then)

    Then rebooted the PC from the USB drive, wiped all partitions and did a fresh install without any problems, again ran whynot11 and some of the options had changed on a fresh install. Some Still in the RED though.

    Thanx Wai for your info. I'm trying to do an upgrade to 22471.1000_amd64 via the UUP Dump site . Got the ISO and ran setup no joy, Copied install.wim but still no joy. I think that these hack rounds are only for mew installs.
    Regards,

    Try that other Option from Github. The ISO's from UUP Dump are directly downloaded from Microsoft. The One from Github, also gets the ISO from Microsoft but from what I gather ( could be wrong) it alters / removes the restrictions that the original ISO has, similar to how the insider builds were.

    Of Course doing anything this way, theres no knowing what will happen in the future -- Its a wait and see game. Microsoft have advised even after giving the work around themselves that there may be no updates and some functions may not work or have a unknown side effect.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
