This is my insider machine, previous W10 and now W11. Noticed on my account page, under devices, I have 2 devices for my account. I think??, it may have happened when I installed W11 and it changed and added a 2nd device for W11. The middle one shows the last W10 build, the far right one shows the current W11 build. Anything to be concerned about? Thinking I might remove the W10 device since most likely will not be going back? (Notice the different RAM assignments)

What is your current Windows PC name in Windows 11, DESKTOP-NAHFFIC or BIOSTAR? I', guessing BIOSTAR?

As for removing it - it is not hurting anything, and if you're forced to go back to 10 for whatever reason, that activation will still be there and setting it up will be a lot easier.

So, I say, keep it.

Yes you are correct, Biostar. OK keep it for the time being because the hardware etc is not W11 friendly. If things continue like MS has said will be forced back to W10.....Maybe? Tx
