Windows 11: Some Windows users are experiencing hardware incompatibility issues in the Windows 11 update, released last Tuesday (5). On installation verification, the system may prevent the update due to TPM 2.0 or CPU. However, Microsoft itself has published a way to work around this problem.
The errors, which may appear in the installation verification or in the PC Health Check application, are due to the lack of CPU support and the lack of TPM 2.0. The security module should provide users with more guarantees, which is why it is required. To “workaround” these errors, Microsoft Support has shared a registry change that can be made.
Installation on “ineligible” devices may not be “guaranteed to receive updates, including but not limited to security updates,” warns Microsoft. Users should also be careful when making changes to the operating system’s registry, which can cause PCs to malfunction if not run properly.
