    Default Windows 11 for all??

    I just update my laptop yesterday to a SSD and set the memory up to 8 Gig even though the CPU fails the Win 11 CPU test . Today when I went to check for updates I was offed Win 11 22H2 so I'm doing it

    But here's the kicker. My 10 year old PB Tech built machine running Win 10 and fails every Win 11 compatibility check has now offered me the same version. Has Microsoft relented and opened it up for everyone??

    Do I risk doing it?? The laptop doesn't worry me if there are issues as I can just load win 10 back on to it.

    Win 11 runs fine on a second partition as an real early version.

    I wonder if the update is tied to my Microsoft account as my wife's Win 10 laptop that fails on CPU and TPM hasn't been offered it.

    That's interesting. And surprising! Go for it. I'm running win 11 on a supposedly non compliant laptop, but it is not 10 years old!

    I'm doing it now. If it trashed the Win 10 partition I'll restore last Saturday's Image backup.

    It failed on TPM and secure boot test though the laptop seems to be updating fine.

    It still keeps offering the Win 11 update . I could hack the registry as I did when I installed it on the second partition but I can't be bothered.

    Looks like they have changed the requirements. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/win...1-requirements According to the CPU list, the previous CPU in my old PC that wasn't compatible, now is.

    Yep both our i7 laptops processor 6500U are now on the list, time will tell as its not showing as compatible still in win updates, not that bothered anyway as this laptops stuffed with a broken case. Be nice if SWMBO's one updates though.

    Still no support for the i3 7100U in my intel NUC, pity as I wanted to have a play on that as it's not currently in use.

    My gaming PC could support it but I don't want to mess with it as I'm pretty happy with windows 10 right now.

    Still no support for my 1st gen Ryzen5 .

    You can/could install Win11 regardless anyway.
    It will install (there were ways), but MS stated that Win11 on unsupported hardware MIGHT not get future Windows Updates

    I installed Win11 on a old WinVista era notebook.
