Original: Microsoft launched the most awaited Windows 11 operating system for all the eligible PC owners today via Window Insider Program. The first Windows 11 Insider Preview comes with firmware build number 22000.51; as opposed to the prior leaked Windows ISO v21996.1. See how to download and install Windows 11 Insider Preview on any computer even if the PC Health Check software shows unsupported hardware by Microsoft.

Microsoft has some Windows 11 system requirements for eligibility for a free upgrade. This requires your device to have the newer generation processors like 8th gen or later for Intel, AMD Gen 2 or later, as well as Qualcomm 7 and 8 Series. Most importantly, TPM 2.0 and UEFI with secure boot is a must.

Although the support for Intel processors is constantly updated, it may take very long to get into the Windows 11 dev channel. Here is how to bypass the PC Health Check and get into the Windows Insider Program on unqualified PCs or unsupported hardware.

The following tutorial requires tweaking the Registry to trick Windows into thinking it is supported hardware. This tutorial will help you download and install latest Windows 11 Insider Preview build 10.0.22000.51 easily.
