I Have an ASUS Viviobook with W10, it has a Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.71 GHz
CPU, the minimum requirements are 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores on
a compatible 64-bit processor.

It seems to me that my unit should pass but the test result was FAIL

Any idea why it fails

Regards

Daniel

You have a 7th gen processor. Check the compatibility list for Intel processors carefully and you'll find that nothing earlier than 8th gen is supported.

What is the failure? Is it TPM and Secure Boot or any other error?

Sorry, it failed because the CPU did not qualify

Cheers

STEPS TO DO CLEAN INSTALL
Try to install again, boot from USB. When at the screen said INSTALL NOW, press SHIFT + F10 to bring up command prompt.
Type REGEDIT, and go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\

Right-click one Setup and create new key LabConfig
Inside LabConfig:
- create DWORD (32-bit) BypassTPMCheck, set value to 1
- create DWORD (32-bit) BypassSecureBootCheck, set value to 1, and

Close the registry editor, close the command prompt, and continue to install.

STEPS TO DO UPGRADE INSTALL
If you trying to install as an upgrade from the previous version, mount the ISO, run Setup.exe
When the setup window comes up, find this folder:
C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\

Find the file appraiser.sdb, delete it. Continue install.
The other way, get the file appraiserres.dll from Windows 10 and replace the same file inside the Sources folder.

I have a Acer Spin laptop that for now runs Windows 11 just fine. Everything passes the upgrade test except the CPU. It's a 6th gen i7. I'm not going to image back to Windows 10 unless I'm forced to.

We always can push and force things to work since long time ago. I've just installed the latest build on an old and dusty Intel E5500, 4GB DDR2 RAM, old HDD with MBR partition, and no GPU. All running well. Just don't push and force too far. When we have the newest OS, doesn't mean that we need to have all newest softwares too. Old machines got narrower limit lines..

The TPM (also RAM, SB, and CPU) check is on the Setup. Windows 11 won't check if your PC has the requirements.

The issue with custom builds of an OS is what you are getting in addition to what the hacker has removed, I would advise anyone and everyone to be very careful of any hacked version of any OS, but especially the OS of the moment Windows 11

It could be fine and work perfectly or it may be fine and work at a limited capacity for modern software or it may be full of nasties ready to be activated at a later date ;)

Yups. A friend of mine just got a ransomware attack recently. I would not suggest that "custom" built. I installed full "untouched" copy and add/remove the components later.

Unless those "Lite Editions" of Windows 11 are a legitimate product provided by Microsoft, they are almost certainly pirated editions, and I wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole!

I don't have a problem with workarounds to get Windows 11 (legitimate Microsoft product) to install on one's older machine. I do however have a problem of piracy. I'm not condemning you, @blacxarea, but trying to warn the uninformed.

I have done a search on Windows 11 Lite, and cannot find one reputable vendor who has advertised Windows 11 Lite! If someone buys a copy of "Windows 11 Lite", I'm pretty sure that sooner or later, Microsoft will contact them . . .

Unless those "Lite Editions" of Windows 11 are a legitimate product provided by Microsoft, they are almost certainly pirated editions, and I wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole!

I don't have a problem with workarounds to get Windows 11 (legitimate Microsoft product) to install on one's older machine. I do however have a problem of piracy. I'm not condemning you, @blacxarea, but trying to warn the uninformed.

I have done a search on Windows 11 Lite, and cannot find one reputable vendor who has advertised Windows 11 Lite! If someone buys a copy of "Windows 11 Lite", I'm pretty sure that sooner or later, Microsoft will contact them . . .
I'm with you. I will admit that I did try the unofficial release of Windows 11 in a VM. There is no way I would use a unofficial hacked version of any OS.

I'm also with you! I using latest (official and Insider) versions of Windows ISOs and not worrying if the workarounds is not working -- there's so many workarounds to do from.

Hi

I believe that an official roll out will happen some time soonish.

I will wait until W11 is offered then.

Cheers

Daniel

The Lite version does not remove the compatibility checks. It has removed some features to make it "light" (not even close), including Microsoft Edge, so there is no way to browse the Internet and download drivers, unless you install a browser first! Very "clever"!
