How to install Windows 11 on PC not compatible with the official Microsoft method | Digital Trends Spanish


Windows 11 is so great that it even made Microsoft back down. The statement goes because in June, during the presentation of Windows 11, Microsoft announced the minimum system requirements to install its new operating system and among them was TPM 2.0, an acronym that in Spanish is equivalent to Trusted Platform Module, a microchip that is installed in the motherboards of some computers and that is used to store encryption keys. In short, a security chip. In the end, Microsoft turned back and offers an official method for install Windows 11 on an unsupported PC.

Microsoft’s official method of installing Windows 11 on an unsupported PC is to modify the Windows registry. The process is relatively simple, but it should be done with great care, as Microsoft advises that wrongly modifying it could require you to completely reinstall your previous operating system.
