You can download Windows 11 Update via Windows 11 ISO, Update Assistant, Media Creation Tool from our latest post. However, not every device is eligible.

Starting October 5, Windows 11 is hitting devices across the globe in a phased manner. Microsoft set some minimum Windows 11 system requirements in order to install the latest operating system. It is a free upgrade for Windows 10 PCs with newer generation hardware.

If your PC is not eligible, here you will learn to download the Windows 11 ISO final update 21H2 build 22000.194 and install it on any PC. The latest PC Health Check software also shows you why your device may be unsupported.

The trick is simple. Thanks to the Github project Universal MediaCreationTool wrapper by AveYo, you can simply run the Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update_v2.cmd program running while Windows 11 installation to block the minimum requirements check.

Download and Install Windows 11 Stable On Unsupported Windows PCs using Rufus

Rufus Beta 2 can now disable TPM and Secure Boot requirements while creating Windows Installation media. So you don’t need to go through all the trouble as shown above. You can now directly choose to bypass TPM check and secure boot check while creating a bootable Windows 11 USB drive.

With Rufus, you can easily do the following:

  • Create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
  • Work on a system that doesn’t have an OS installed
  • Flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • Run a low-level utility

Here is the latest Rufus 3.16 Beta 2 changelog:

  • Fix ISO mode support for Red Hat 8.2+ and derivatives [#1777]
  • Fix BIOS boot support for Arch derivatives
  • Fix removal of some boot entries for Ubuntu derivatives
  • Fix log not being saved on exit
  • Add Windows 11 “Extended” installation support (Disables TPM/Secure Boot/RAM requirements)
  • Add UEFI Shell ISO downloads (retroactively applied through FIDO)
  • Add support for Intel NUC card readers
  • Improve Windows 11 support [#1779]
  • Improve Windows version reporting
  • Speed up clearing of MBR/GPT

As you can see from above, the latest Rufus 3.16 Beta 2 can Add Windows 11 “Extended” installation support (Disables TPM/Secure Boot/RAM requirements).

Microsoft’s method to bypass the check for TPM 2.0 and the CPU family and model

Here is Microsoft’s very own method to install Windows 11 on unsupported Windows PCs. It requires some Registry tweaks and you are good to go. However, you at least need TPM 1.2 as per Microsoft.

As for the CPU and other hardware requirements, Microsoft officially allows installing Windows 11 using install media on any model or generation of CPU as long as you meet the other requirements. So if your PC can run Windows 10, it most likely can run Windows 11.

  • You can create the following registry key values and bypass the check for TPM 2.0 (at least TPM 1.2 is required) and the CPU family and model.
  • In Windows Search – Registry – and launch Registry Editor. OR, Right-click Start , then select Run. Type regedit in the Open: box, and then select OK.

      It’s mostly false positive. You can ignore it. If you don’t trust the code, you can also use Microsoft’s very own method to bypass TPM. It requires you to edit Registry:
