To check if Windows 11 is ready for your device, go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and select Check for updates. If the upgrade is available for your device and you want to proceed, download and install it.
Upgrading to Windows 11 from Windows 10 will be free.
If users just want to do a clean install from your car’s bootable USB drive, the Windows 11 USB installer will work fine on any PC as it supports secure boot and there must be some TPM option, no registry changes are required.
Windows 11 typically requires an 8th generation Intel Core processor or an AMD Ryzen 3000 series processor or higher, as well as secure boot and TPM 2.0 support for hard drive handling and other security features. PCs released with Featured and released in late 2017 straight into 2018 can usually run the operating system, unlike older PCs which usually can’t.
There just aren’t enough advanced and useful features to justify moving from Windows 10 to Windows 11. However, to be fair, Microsoft usually tries hard. Last year we wrote that Windows 11 was, in a word, great. Six months changed our point of view? No, although there are indications that the Microsoft patch is linked to the most obvious Windows 11 bugs.
Follow these steps to upgrade an affected device from Windows 10 to Windows 14: Open File Explorer.
Click on the “Allowed to stay connected to this PC” box.
Under Devices and drives, open the USB installation media.
Currently, double click the setup.exe file to start the update. Source: Windows Center.
Click Next, Johnson.
Click the Accept button to accept that this installation of Windows 11 is not supported.
Click on the installation link.
The free upgrade recommendation does not have a specific end date for eligible systems. However, Microsoft reserves the right to discontinue support for the free tier at any time. This end date will not be a date relative to what was in Octo. Can I continue so you can use Windows 10? Yes. You haven’t upgraded to Windows 11 yet.
To check if Windows 11 can run on your Windows PC, download the PC health check app. (Clicking on this hyperlink will launch the specific download immediately, and you can also find the link to it on the Microsoft website.) Then open your download history and agree to the terms to be set. Then check the “Open Windows PC Health Check” box and hence “Finish”.
