Windows 11 arrived with bad news under its arm. Microsoft’s new operating system could not be installed on older computers that did not meet certain processor and motherboard requirements. Now the company has backtracked on that but with a nuance. If something happens to the PC it is your fault.
How we explained in is fasting, initially only 8th generation Intel Core (released in 2017), AMD Zen 2 (released in 2019), and Qualcomm Series 7 or later processors were compatible with Windows 11. In a publication on your website, the company said shortly thereafter that it will test devices with 7th-generation Intel processors and AMD Zen 1 before the official launch of the operating system, to identify older computers that can meet its “principles.”
To optimize system reliability, Microsoft requires CPUs that have adopted the new Windows driver model. The company says that compatible computer and processor manufacturers are achieving a 99.8% glitch-free experience. In terms of compatibility, Windows 11 now has the same minimum requirements as Office and Microsoft Teams: a 1GHz 2-core CPU, 4GB of memory, and 64GB of storage.
Microsoft launched an online application called Checking the PC status which allowed users to check if their computer met the minimum requirements necessary for the installation of Windows 11. Unfortunately, the application caused quite a bit of confusion and Microsoft terminated it extraction to re-enable it a little later. It continues giving sporadic phalluses giving as invalid for Windows 11 computers that are.
The point is that now Microsoft has introduced a new message in the Windows 11 installation program. The first to discover it have been the technicians of The edge. The message warns the user that it is not recommended to install Windows 11 on the PC on which the operation is being attempted due to hardware compatibility problems and that any problems due to this installation will be the responsibility of the user. The message says:
Installing Windows 11 on this PC is not recommended and could result in compatibility issues. If you continue with the Windows 11 installation, your PC will no longer be supported and will not be eligible for updates. Damage to your computer resulting from possible lack of compatibility is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
