    Not really I had all of it without any help and things like a TMP2.0 I didn't even know I had a TMP2.0 and I'm a windows insider

  • smievil

    taskbar stuff is not to the left, don't want...

  • smievil

    can connect almost anything to usb, maybe it's a security reason

    im chillin with a 2080ti with 11th gen intel chip lol

    It really is crazy to see that Microsoft isn't budging on TPM requirements even a month or two before official release. I really enjoy it so far but they are really shooting themselves in the foot with this one.

    Ya know, there is a bright side to Windows 11's shit requirements. I finally have a reason to learn Linux. (Literally none my PCs can run Windows 11, officially.) Manjaro, here I come!!!

    I really hope they make it compatible on all windows devices. Yeah I get that some people don’t have the most expensive setups (I certainly don’t) but this is just kinda weird. I don’t want to buy a new laptop just for one update. I can’t afford it right now, and my laptop runs great for being 3 years old. And to add insult to injury, they had to do it at a time like this with the chip shortage. And honestly, I think apple has it good right now with the MacBooks because I have a 2011 or so MacBook Pro and it runs just fine on high Sierra(I believe is what it’s on) and I’d rather just get a patcher for it than buy a new laptop. And to make it better, MacBooks from 2015 are still supported I believe and I think they will be for a bit longer and apple is now making their own chips so they don’t have to worry about support issues right now.

    Ran WIN 11 on a test drive for about 45 days. Hate it put my old NVME back in and will go to Ubuntu when WIN 10 is no longer supported. Tired of MS acting like Appel and controlling what I can and can't do with my own property.

    Think of all the older computers government employees use. So Microsoft is telling them to go and buy all new computers just to stay up to date with windows 11. I don’t think so.

    my brand new ryzen 3070 pc with a 3080 can't even install windows 11... keeps saying I haven't got a TPM 2.0 even though I have it enabled in bios (I have no module, but have the firmware tpm enabled)

  • Etherie

    Updated my PC to windows 11. Took 3 hours to finally figure everything out. I had to enable TPM2.0 in my bios and then I had to turn secure boot but my PC was running legacy instead of UEFI. Absolute pain in the ass but it was extremely worth it. Windows 11 is a great experience

    • Just a dude
      Just a dude

      Gotta agree here. Was not expecting it to run as well as it has. I have had ZERO problems with it so far. Looks great too!

    • optical

      how’d you go from legacy to uefi?

    • Shaik Zaid

    I built a computer back in 2009, granted, I bought the best of the best components for the built at the time, and I upgraded what was able to update last year, max memory, SSD and such, but the motherboard can't be updated with a CPU older than 3rd Gen. This computer game better than any gaming laptop today, handles HDR beautifully, and if I get an RTX pretty sure I can make it work as well, right now only have a GTX 1060. I won't throw my baby away just because of an operating system. On 2025, if it is required or when my computer die, then I might get a Mac Desktop instead and put Ubuntu on this built. Sorry, this is a very stupid move from Microsoft. I don't care of what Microsoft thinks is safer for me, that's my choice, not them.

    I believe many disillusioned Windows users will leave Windows at the end of Windows 10 life as gaming and ease of usage with programs on Linux is in ever increasing, if Microsoft has any brains they will lower their restrictions on TPM or face loss of users/revenue,. When their forced user cost factor is so high at present, to update their systems just to run Windows 11 their users may just migrate to Linux!

  • Randominator

    Their new spyware OS requires high-end hardware

    I still use Windows 7. It's the same shite

  • Norman F Birnberg

    The processor is the least pressing issue. You can bypass an incompatible processor but the other requirements are essential to get Windows 11 successfully installed and up and running. You need UEFI, TPM 2.0 and secure boot. The Windows 11 installer will stop you if you don’t have those features enabled. Microsoft has relented on what kind of processor can be unofficially accommodated but the main requirements are set in stone. You can have an old processor but if you lack the rest of the things Windows 11 wants, stay on Windows 10. That much is now clear.

    Goodness! It makes no since to roll out a program that's incompatible with most computers! What is Microsoft thinking!!!

  • Batfan1939

    Microsoft has been getting more and more oppressive with their systems. It's gotten to the point where I can't choose certain color combinations, because they don't gel with Microsoft's tastes. As difficult as Linux can be to learn, I keep coming back to the idea of just switching to Ubuntu or Mint.

    My somewhat old i5 6400 has Intel PTT support and thus can run W11. Do I want to, however? Just give all the features from the W10 taskbar, and reimplement folders into the start menu. Gonna be a hell to find anything without app organizing and forced taskbar button combining.

    Don't have a TPM in your computer? Can't get Windows 11. Have Intel core 7th gen or earlier? Can't get windows 11. Install with USB, won't get updates. BUY a MAC. Macs need to be trashed basically every 5 to 6 years. Than buy a new Mac. That's the same case with Windows right now.

    I heard in some ITmores video that the TPM requirement is dictated by securing the system boot procedure in such a way that the system was loaded based on the keys stored in tpm by secure boot to prevent the system from loading malware that would try to hide from the anti-virus scanner - for security reasons it is good, but in my case updade do windows 11 is too "much fun", forcing me to replace all my good computers with new ones due to the tpm requirement, which these computers do not have because they are older than 3 years - for me it is absurd to pull on cash to buy a new - meeting the requirements - computer - maybe there is some conspiracy behind it - dill M $ with computer equipment manufacturers to drive them more sales? or something like that ..
