Windows 10 can be upgraded to Windows 11 for free

Windows 11, with all kinds of buzz, has finally been officially announced. Looking at the screenshots and information that is available now, it looks like it will be a pretty promising operating system. And luckily, upgrading from Windows 10 is free!

I’m curious about the conditions … Is TPM 2.0 required (which is delicious)? DirectX 12 or later (how many did you support)? Microsoft has prepared a verification tool for me.

You can check if your device meets the “Windows 11” requirements with the “PC Health Check” tool distributed by Microsoft.

However! I have a wonderful judgment that “Windows 11 cannot run on this PC”. I tried to investigate various causes using “CPU-Z” and “GPU-Z”, but I’m not sure. The conditions should have been clarified elsewhere as well …

The CPU is of the “Haswell” generation and is compatible with TPM 2.0

GPU supports DirectX 12

WDDM was also cleared with v2.5
