At this point of the year, the adoption of Windows 11 still does not reach the numbers expected by Microsoft, despite this, many users try to install the new operating system on their computers to use the functions that are news in Windows.
There are some striking new features, such as the renewed design of the interface, as well as the native support for Android applications, which may encourage more than one to update their equipment with the new operating system.
The list of compatible computers that support installing Windows 11 is very long if you look at all those currently running Windows 10. As you know, Microsoft has updated the list of requirements for Material that every computer must respect.
However, there are still a large number of users for whom it is possible that due to system specifications, the update is not recommended. You can know all the details with our guide to How to know if your PC or laptop supports Windows 11.
Among them is the use of a processor that supports a TPM 2.0 module. This leaves out a lot of older equipment, as the TPM 2.0 module was released in October 2014.

It turns out that the program did not take into account whether or not TPM 2.0 was enabled in the BIOS settings. Holding the ‘ESC or DEL’ key during the boot process of a PC will allow us to access the system BIOS.
The TPM option can also generally be described as ‘PTT’ or ‘PSP fTPM’. However, even if you don’t have a TPM 2.0 compatible processor, don’t be in a rush to buy a new computer.
There is a way around this issue with Secure Boot requirements, but that involves making changes to the registry, which we don’t recommend unless you’re an expert user or doing it on a computer that doesn’t It’s not your primary device and isn’t critical to your work.
In any case, please note that Microsoft does not officially support seto, so proceed at your own risk. In fact, as Windows Latest reports, Microsoft will repeatedly warn you that your device is not compatible with the new operating system.
You may see reminders in “Settings” and a watermark on your Windows 11 desktop, but that won’t stop most apps from working properly.
How to Install Windows 11 on an Unsupported PC
This method involves creating an environment similar to that of a test lab. Microsoft will allow device manufacturers to disable the TPM requirement in their version of Windows 11, and this is something we explain below:
- Head over to the official Windows 11 download page to get the new operating system. You have three options to choose from.
- Follow the step-by-step installation guide.
- If your PC does not meet the hardware requirements, you will see a message saying “This PC cannot run Windows 11”.
- From this screen, press “Shift + F10” to open the command prompt window.
- Type ‘regedit’ and press ‘Enter’.
- The Windows Registry Editor will now open. In the address bar, type: ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup’ and press ‘Enter’.
- You should now see a “Settings” button. Right-click and choose ‘New > Key’.
- You will then be asked to give it a name. Choose ‘LabConfig’ and press ‘Enter’.
- Right-click on the new key you created and choose “New > DWORD Value” (32-bit).
- Give it the name “BypassTPMCheck” and set your data to 1.
- Follow the same process for ‘BypassRAMCheck’ and ‘BypassSecureBootCheck’, with the same value of 1.
- Close this window using the red ‘X’ in the upper right corner.
- Close the Command Prompt window by typing “exit” and pressing “Enter.”
- You will see the message “This PC cannot run Windows 11” again. Click the “Back” button in the upper left corner.
- You should now be able to complete the installation naturally.
Note here that following these steps may affect the performance and stability of Windows 11, so we recommend that you proceed with caution and, if possible, try it first on a computer other than your primary PC.
Is it safe to install Windows 11 on an unsupported computer?
As seems obvious, this is not the case. Windows 11’s hardware requirements are mostly about security, although many people think they’re too stringent.
Using an operating system that isn’t designed to work without a TPM chip or Secure Boot is a risk, but you’ll likely be fine if your device meets most of the installation requirements.
The older the hardware and components, the higher the risk. In any case, we recommend that you install it on a laptop or PC that is not the main device of use. If this is unavoidable, do a full backup first so you don’t lose anything.
If it turns out that you have installed Windows 11 and once you have seen how the computer works you are not entirely convinced, we have a dedicated article that shows you how to uninstall Windows 11 and go back to Windows 10.
