How to Install Windows 11 on Just About Any Computer

Wndows 11

Yesterday, I was scanning some tech sites and found an interesting article on HiTechGlitz that caught my attention called “How to Install Windows 11 on Any Computer…”. And after reading the article I found a step-by-step tutorial on how to install Windows 11 on computers that otherwise don’t support Windows 11.

Now, before you get to thinking we’re recommending this, we are not. But we know that some of you are looking for ways to install Windows 11 on your Windows 10 computers that don’t meet the Windows 11 requirements.

The method outlined in the HiTechGlitz article – and the step-by-step tutorial by WinAero outline the best and safest we’ve seen since it uses the Windows disk image (ISO) directly from Microsoft servers. That’s a good thing.

And again, we’re not recommending this, we’re keeping you informed. Keeping you informed is a big part of our mission.

How to Install Windows 11 on Any Computer Including Computers Without TPM 2.0

Windows 11 is now less than a week away from being rolled out to people around the world. Even though the launch is so close, there is still a lot of confusion about the system requirements for the operating system, particularly the need for TPM 2.0.

Many users who use the PC Health Check app to test their system̵… are disappointed to learn that they do not have TPM 2.0 and are therefore unable to upgrade. But a new open-source installation script has been released that makes it possible to install Windows 11 on almost any hardware and bypass the TPM check. Say hello to MediaCreationTool.bat.

MediaCreationTool.bat is basically a universal MediaCreationTool wrapper that helps download and install Windows 10 – but it’s more than that. With the recently added Windows 11 support as well as a script to bypass the TPM check, it’s become… an indispensable tool for anyone whose hardware is classified as problematic by Microsoft.

For anyone concerned about using a third-party script to obtain and install an operating system, there are two important points to keep in mind. First, this is an open-source tool. So if something strange was going on in the background, it would be quickly recognized. Second, the script only downloads Windows (disk) images directly from Microsoft, not unknown servers – so you can trust what you get. The tool will then create custom installation media for you, including the TPM check bypass. (Read the original article here.)

If you’re interested in running Windows 11 on unsupported hardware, visit this WinAero page for download links and step-by-step instructions for installing Windows 11 on just about any Windows 10 computer.

Reminder: We are not encouraging you to install Windows 11 on any computer with hardware that does not natively support Windows 11. But we know some of you are going to try it anyway and this seems to be the safest way.

    I am quite certain my computer will not handle Windows 11, but—-I DO NOT WANT WINDOWS 11.

    How do I make sure I do not get it?

    Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate it so much.
