    Actually looking forward to getting windows 11 hopefully better than 10. October is a long time to wait though.

    I'd give it a try, but my newest spare hardware is a slightly flaky FX-6350 board so I guess I'm out unless they drop the CPU requirements again.

    Honestly, I feel like I'm being dumber than a box of frogs but for love nor money can I find just a download for the Windows 11 ISO, I'm only being shown Windows 10 builds.

    Not entirely - you do still need TPM enabled or it won't install it....I found it was disabled in my bios and got an error initially, but after enabling in the bios it allowed me to download. Will be installing shortly!

    I think you have to get it via the insider program - so within windows, rather than as a clean install...currently anyway. I can't find a Windows 11 ISO on my MSDN sub either.

    CPU requirements are a dual core 1ghz cpu?

    To be fair now I've had a play it's perfectly fine. Haven't even bothered moving task bar. Multi monitor setups are handled much better (about time), no problems with any software or hardware at all

    You can download the windows 10 Dev iso from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...iderpreviewiso and then run windows update. You don't need to login once the OS is installed you just need to check for updates in settings and let it install. After restart you will have windows 11. I tested this in a VM last night.

    If you want to upgrade using a current installed windows 10 setting flight to dev and then checking for updates should give the same result.

    The FX isn't on the list of supported AMD processors though. Depends on whether that is enforced or just a recommendation.
