Hi

I have a Aspire ES -11 (ES1-132-C4XY) with 4 gb ram and eMMC 32 gb and intel hd graphics.

I installed a genuine Windows 11 ISO downloaded from Microsoft but using the latest Rufus 3.16 which allows you to bypass automatically various checks after you have in my case created the USB installation drive.

It went easy peasy; no hiccups ,no blank screens installed quicker than Windows 10 and since I have been using it, the computer has already downloaded Updates from Microsoft and is at version 22000.258

It is legitimately activated through Microsoft servers as Windows 11 Home.

I can confirm that I used Ghot's post to install Windows 11 on my unsupported hardware and it worked like a dram so RUFUS is the way for us non techies to go.
I'm 70 years old and remember DOS and memmaker command to boost you computers memory up before trying to even install Windows 95 and arcane stuff like that happy days

Congratulations! I bet it runs well. I installed it on a 10" netbook with atom processor and it's running much better than it did on Windows 10.

Well, I'm 40 years old and remember using the memmaker command, too! Back in the late-1990s! When I was using MS-DOS 6x. (one of the late versions of MS-DOS, before Windows 95) And remembering Windows 95 seeming a little-bit hard to configure, LOL.

Rufus, for me, too! It's the one that's easy-peasy for pure-UEFI installations.

Well there is a thread for installing W11 on unsupported hardware :). Which is not necessarily old hardware but some is.

Sorry - it’s incompatible hardware as opposed to unsupported.

Hi.
I bought from Gadget shop for only £100 an ASUS AIO computer which again failed mighty MIcrosoft silly Windows 11 criteria.

Manufacturer ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
Model ET2221A (P0)
Version Rev 1.01G
Chipset Vendor AMD

Operating System
Windows 11 Pro 64-bit
CPU
AMD A6 28 °C
Richland 32nm Technology
RAM
4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 809MHz (11-11-12-28)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. ET2221A (P0) 63 °C
Graphics
ET2221A (1920x1080@60Hz)
768MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 8450G (ATI) 27 °C
Storage
931GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 (SATA ) 29 °C
Optical Drives
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GTA0N
Audio
High Definition Audio Device

Again using Rufus 3.17 and booting from a USB stick Windows 11 installed easily and whereas there had been Windows 8.1 on the computer, there was now Windows 11 Pro and activated automatically gain legitimately through Microsoft servers.

Trying to install an ordinary windows 11 iso you are immediately knocked back.

Thanks,

Paul Hatton

Hi there,

Today I succeeded in installing windows 11 pro on a Lenovo Thinkpad T450.

The boot time is about 20 seconds and much faster than the windows 10 pro I had installed previously.

I had to use shift - F10 and use diskpart to change my MBR to GPT SSD disk after a back up of course and change to UEFI and secure boot in the Bios.

Operating System
Windows 11 Pro 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i5 5300U @ 2.30GHz 41 °C
Broadwell-U 14nm Technology
RAM
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Motherboard
LENOVO 20BUS05800 (U3E1)
Graphics
LCD 1600x900 (1600x900@60Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 5500 (Lenovo)
Storage
447GB KINGSTON SUV500480G (SATA-2 (SSD)) 33 °C
Optical Drives
No optical disk drives detected
Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio

The system activated normally through MS servers and now has Windows 11 Pro so KMS activation tools needed.

I was going to but a laptop from Currys/PC World but they are expensive for what you get and the RAM allocation appalling, I have 16 gb on
installed on this laptop which I bought about a year ago at the GADGET shop locally.

Sorry I forgot to add that clearly the Lenovo laptop is old hardware and not supported but again I used that vital piece of software Rufus 3.16 with the ability to bypass Windows 11 restrictions

Sounds excellent - and like Windows 11 will basically run on anything - just like Windows 10. Shouldn't these posts be on the unsupported hardware thread though? :)

Yeah point taken cerebus and also Hazel 123 but the reason I started at the age of 70 was that I go way back to DOS 6.22 and Amstrad computers and Windows 3.1 and 3.11 was a vast improvement; but the real thing that got me going on forums was my wife going into hospital way back in June 2021 as she had Multiple Sclerosis and had got progressively weaker and she died in hospital on 13th September 2021 and last weeks was unconscious and I just sat with her, couldn't move, speak, eat and fed through a tube too so although I get therapy, this forum and posts helps too guys so sorry if I've messed up whatever rules there are but it helps me on enjoying this techno conversation and stuff its different and I need different like desperate at moment ; so there you are don't "flame" me too much as I'm fairly wrecked old boy ( ageist again sorry !)

I'm only 63 so am a youngster here :wink:

as for your previous post, you have our condolences, and this forum is here to help our users in any way that we can


Back to topic

What you have to remember is that microsoft made several statements with regard to compatibility requirements, they also produced a registry patch for download that actually got past the restrictions in a Windows Update from Windows 10 to Windows 11

Microsoft's statement warned that at some indeterminate time in the future ( some update to add a feature that is not compatible with the earlier processor generations pre Gen8), that these system may stop working.

I am not aware of any plans that Microsoft have for Future updates to Windows 11, but it is quite possible that they do have some plans that created the compatibility settings

Paul, I'm deeply sorry for your loss. I'm certain that no one here is going to flame you. While the reasons we come here vary as greatly as the people themselves, I think that you would be hard pressed to find a group of people more genuinely interested in sharing knowledge and our love of this technology.

It's really refreshing to be able to participate in a place where the politics and hate is completely absent, and you can feel free to participate without getting flamed.

Goodness knows that I've asked my share of what some might consider moronic questions but have never received anything but helpful guidance here.

All I can say is: Welcome to our group of tech enthusiasts, geeks, and Windows 11 users. I look forward to participating in further conversations with you in the future!
