windows 11
I am running the Canary branch the build number is 26040.1000 that was the last build that installed correctly before they started releasing the ge_releases where they are not using the legacy installer so builds 26052,26058,and the latest 26063 which are all ge_releases will not install. I have tried to update the last three updates 26952,26058,and 26063 they download perfectly start to install on reboot i see the install process up to 30 percent then it reboots to continue the install process but instead of it showing the install progress it just shows the white circle and no install process snd thahts as far as it goes it will not finish the installation. My bios settings is UEFI IN NATIVE MODE WITHOUT CMS INSTEAD OF UEFI HYBRID WITH CMS. I HAD SECURE BOOT ON AND IT DID NOT INSTALL AND I HAVE TRIED IT WITH SECURE BOOT OFF. I HAVE TRIED TO INSTALL THE NEW ge_releases in UEFI HYBRID MODE AND UEFI NATIVE MODE WITH SECURE BOOT ON AND OFF BUT IT WILL NOT INSTALL COMPLETELY. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

Hi & welcome to the forum.
Are you aware that the use of caps is equivalent to shouting and is considered rude?

The type of installation failure with Germanium builds you describe is usually associated with a non-supported CPU,
but since you give us no system specs in your profile, this will remain speculation, which I despise.

The GE builds need to be installed using either Terminal or Terminal Preview - as they require one of the latest versions of x64 PowerShell.

Welcome to Eleven Forum.

You don't say in your profile specs what CPU you have. That is the exactly the symptom I have seen on a CPU that lacks the PopCnt instruction. While other 'unsupported device' restrictions can be bypassed, that one can't. For the current 24H2 Dev and Canary builds the PopCnt instruction is fundamental to the operation of the Kernel.

This is not just an artificial limitation in the hardware checks that can be bypassed by a workaround. PopCnt is actually used in the OS code. Any attempt to install on a machine with an unsupported CPU will fail to boot.....

....To check if your CPU has PopCnt, see post #25 here: Microsoft's upcoming change could block off Windows 11 CPU requirements bypass on old PCs

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October. Windows Update offered the 22H2 Feature Update on 20th September 2022. It got the 23H2 Feature Update on 4th November 2023 through Windows Update.

    My SYSTEM THREE is a Dell Latitude 5410, i7-10610U, 32GB RAM, 512GB NVMe ssd, supported device running Windows 11 Pro (and all my Hyper-V VMs).

    My SYSTEM FOUR is a 2-in-1 convertible Lenovo Yoga 11e 20DA, Celeron N2930, 8GB RAM, 256GB ssd. Unsupported device: currently running Win10 Pro, plus Win11 Pro RTM and Insider Dev, Beta, and RP 24H2 as native boot vhdx.

    My SYSTEM FIVE is a Dell Latitude 3190 2-in-1, Pentium Silver N5030, 4GB RAM, 512GB NVMe ssd, supported device running Windows 11 Pro, plus the Insider Beta, Dev, Canary, and Release Preview builds as a native boot .vhdx.

Hi & welcome to the forum.
In order to receive adequate suggestions, we must know more about the system being used.
But sadly, your system specs are empty in your profile and that would only result in guesses.
A screenshot of the opening system summary of msinfo32.exe would help.
