Windows 11
The Surface Pro 5 (2017) is currently not supported for Win11

It is disappointing that a relatively new machine coming from MS cannot run Win11

There is a semi-official Regedit hack that can allow the check to be bypassed and win 11 to be installed


But there is a lack of clarity around whether Win11 will actually run on SP5

Has anybody installed Win 11 on SP5 using the hack and been successful?

Do Windows Updates run OK?

I have Surface Pro 5 i5 8GB
