    I can't run the tool, I just get a "Your organisation manages updates on this PC" message.
    I presume & neet to run O&O Shutup10 and re-enable a bunch of the things I turned off to make this work.

    I'm on 1st Gen Ryzen so I guess not, but after so many changes on the requirements I'm not sure. I'm sure I'll be able to get over it and install W11 anyways

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    I haven't bothered checking, and have no plans to upgrade to it any time soon if I do at all, but I'm sure that my system is well within the specs supported before too due to it being a 3rd generation Ryzen.

    EDIT: I would obviously have to enable the fTPM in the BIOS first though.

    No

    My i7 4790k CPU isn't supported and I only have TPM 1.2

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    Yes. Now that I switched on TPM in the BIOS.

    Though doubt if I would consider moving to Windows 11 for at least 6-12 months after the update was released for Window 10 users. I'd rather let everyone else be the beta testers.
    Live long and prosper.

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    I think it does but I'm just not interested in Windows 11, Microsoft lost their chance when they started talking like Apple do, using reams of verbiage to describe an operating system and telling me how it will make me feel tells me nothing.

    No, I have a 3700x cpu but my board does not have the ability to see the fTPM, so had to buy a module, which is on its way.

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    Yes, kinda... I have a 3600X & X570 so can enable CPU TPM/Secure Boot but I haven't done so. I also have access to the TPM module through work so I can go that route too. At present W11 is just a downgrade for me so I won't be upgrading my own systems until late 22 at the earliest. I am already using it at work as we need to have everyone up to speed.

    Mine does, I'll be sticking Windows 11 on the same as I do any other new OS, if it breaks things I don't care..
    However, that's my personal PC, the work machines will stay on Windows 10, Kenwood software's bad enough at the best of times so don't wanna rock the boat..

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    secure boot needs enabling in the BIOS, and the last BIOS update for my asus b450-f enabled the TPM stuff by default.

    so I'm good to go. but do need a full reinstall for the secure boot stuff drivers and things and for that to do whatever it is that it does.

    going to wait a little bit, see whether theres any major release bugs for various things like sound, network, graphics and whether theres even any windows 11 drivers for my GPU that AMD stopped supporting in may.


    my computers the only one in the house out of 5 that could run it though, the rest are to old. even my sister fairy new R1600 B350 one.


    told mates to not even bother checking, so theyre not tempted to try and install it and call me at 8 in morning asking to come round and fix it..

    Re: QOTW: Does your PC meet the requirements to run Windows 11?

    On my newer (2018) laptop, yes. Probably won't for awhile though, since I haven't heard of any amazing features and have been burned by upgrading before SP1 previously.

    On my desktop (built in 2011), which is my main computer, not officially, for several reasons. Too old of a CPU (but would that really be a deal-breaker) and a lack of TPM (could probably add one if I cared to) being the main blockers. But I have no desire to upgrade it; it's my "stable" system, and I still haven't migrated in to Windows 10 (it's on 8.1, which still gets security updates but no feature updates).

    Eventually I'm sure I'll be running 11, or maybe 12, but I still haven't forgotten Windows Vista pre-SP1.
