If you are a Windows 10 user, you can upgrade to Windows 11 without paying a dime. However, even after such a lucrative offer, many are afraid to take the plunge, mainly due to the insane system requirements for Windows 11. Today, we will give you a workaround for this problem, tell you how you could bypass the system check before Windows 11 installation.
What happens when you have Unsupported Hardware?
As you must already know Windows 11 is not as generous as Windows 10, meaning your system has to be considerably beefy to run Windows 11 in all its glory. It is required to have TPM 2.0, Intel 8th generation or Ryzen 3000 CPU and above, an SSD, and more. Yes, the minimum system requirements have been dialed down since launch, but that does not mean you will be able to enjoy all Windows 11 features without an issue.
Even if your system fails to meet a single requirement, the installer will stop you from installing the Windows 11 OS, and there is no way for you to revert back to the previous stage.
