How to install Windows 11 on your non-compatible PC?

Microsoft has released step-by-step instructions for getting around Windows 11’s limitations and running it on machines that aren’t officially supported.

Are you eyeing Windows 11, but your brave PC does not meet the minimum system requirements for its installation? No problem, there is an official tutorial for that. As incredible as it may seem, Microsoft has posted detailed instructions online to circumvent the limitations it has put in place to prevent the installation of Windows 11 on PCs that do not meet its specifications.

As a reminder, the new Microsoft OS can only be installed on computers equipped with a TPM 2.0 module, supporting Secure Boot, and having an Intel or AMD processor listed in the chips supported by Microsoft. In reality, Microsoft explains that its operating system can perfectly be installed on PCs that do not meet all these criteria. However, your PC must have a minimum TPM 1.2 module.

Generous, but not reckless, Microsoft still alerts users who risk carrying out the operation: they do so at their own risk. The manipulation indeed requires the creation of a new entry in the registry of Windows 10, to allow the latter to launch the update to Windows 11 without verifying that the machine has or not the famous TPM 2.0 module. If you have an old Windows 10 machine that is not compatible and unused, and you are tempted by the experience, here is the procedure to follow to update your PC to Windows 11.
