Windows 11: Unsupported PCs Receive System Update

Windows 11: A few weeks ago, Microsoft reported that installations of Windows 11 on computers that did not meet the minimum system requirements, after the release of the stable version of the software, which occurred on the last day 5, would no longer receive updates. However, the plans of the Redmond company appear to have changed.

The first cumulative update for windows 11, made available on Tuesday (12) also reached unsupported computers, as reported by the HTNovo website. A device determined not to be supported by the PC Health Check app used by the publication was given the same build installed on machines that meet Microsoft’s requirements.

In a statement released in June, big tech said that unsupported computers would not be eligible for upgrades when the new generation of the system was made available to the general public. She even recommended that members of the Insider program return to Windows 10 if they were using an unsupported computer.

Despite this, many people doubted whether the updates would actually be available for this target group. Apparently the mystery has been solved, but there is a possibility that updates to these PCs will be discontinued at any time, as Windows Central points out.

What’s new?

Windows 11 Patch Tuesday, as Microsoft’s first cumulative update in the monthly cycle is known, improves the security of the operating system and includes some improvements and fixes. One of the bugs fixed by the KB5006674 package affected the connection speed.

This issue was related to an Intel network driver compatibility error that caused the device to drop User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets. Under certain circumstances, affected machines can load slowly from video streaming sites and platforms.

The Windows 11 maintenance stack, responsible for installing system updates, also underwent improvements, making the tool “more robust and reliable”. These and other improvements are available in the update downloaded from Windows Update and in the Microsoft Update Catalog – in the latter case for manual download.
