For all you people looking for a way to install Windows 11 on non-compatible hardware, Rufus has just made things a lot easier.
Rufus 3.16 has introduced "Extended Windows 11 Installation" Support.


Plug in your UFD, select your Windows 11 ISO, then select "Extended Windows 11 Installation (No TPM/No Secure Boot/8GB- RAM)" from the "Image Option" menu.

I wonder if this will work on a 10 year old HP laptop with an i3 core processor @ 2 GHz, legacy BIOS, no secure boot, and no TPM. Maybe if I'm really bored, I might give it a shot. System has win 10 Pro upgraded from Windows 7. Don't worry, this is not my daily driver.

Yes, it does. I upgraded a 2nd gen Intel Sandy Bridge from Win7 Pro to Win11 Pro and it works great. I even got a digital license on the upgrade. Bypassing TPM and secure boot is easy.

Should do. I used it to install on a 10" atom netbook with 2gb ram. All works fine but needed to find a graphics driver. When making the usb, be sure to check the drop down menu for MBR (not GPT) to make it bootable for legacy bios.

It actually worked for me. System is activated and downloading updates at this moment. It took about 1 1/2 hours to do a clean install, but is was worth it to run Windows 11 on this 10 year old HP laptop.

Does not work when installing from both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Only works with clean installation?

Works for me but you need to delete, from sources folder in USB, "appraiserres.dll".
Yes, but rufus doesn't do that, so you have to take care of it manually. Rufus changes only boot.wim, specifically by creating the BypassTPMCheck and BypassSecureBootCheck keys under HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup\LabConfig, and boot.wim is used only for clean installs. Surprisingly (to me) those keys are enough to also bypass the CPU check.

Does not work when installing from both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Only works with clean installation?
I assumed that when booting from the USB stick, it would not let you do an upgrade from the USB stick.

I would have thought that too considering that it is a bootable UFD.

If you want a UFD which can both clean install on unsupported hardware and do upgrade installs on unsupported hardware, then you should create the UFD with rufus 3.16 and manually remove or rename sources\appraiserres.dll from the UFD. To do a clean install, boot from the UFD. To do an upgrade, mount the UFD and run setup.exe. If you boot from the UFD and try to do an upgrade, the installer will refuse, just as it always has.
