Hey all,
I have an HP Compaq 8000 SFF PC. Now generally speaking it is unsupported by Windows11's secureboot requirement. However thanks to youtube, I found a workaround for this and successfully installed windows11 on my primary pc. I must say I am impressed so far. Its quick, fast, and it seems secure. Just thought I would share with everyone.

Thanks.

Is your HP Compaq 8000 also your primary PC?
It sounds like you're referring to 2 different PC's.

This is a leaked DEV build.


Look at the chart. DEV builds will be installable and usable on even unsupported machines.

Jesse:
The HP Compaq 8000 Elite Small Form Factor was released more than 10 years ago, so what was said in post #6 probably explains why you were able to install that developer version of Windows 11.
