I installed win11 via rufus and iso. But it is on an incompatible laptop. Everything went ok,
But my question is ........ What is the best way to do a win11 repair install and because it was not compatible originally will I lose the installed progs and apps which I had to install from scratch on the win 11 update ?

Thanks

Please update your profile in order to reflect the build version of your OS please.
Screenshot would help as well.
We then can advise you a bit better. Start/run/Winver (enter)

I've run upgrade installs on my incompatible laptop.

The only thing I've ever lost were some Windows 7 games.
