You can always go to Microsoft's website and download the ISO for Windows 11 and install that. Brink did a tutorial for it awhile ago.

Yes, my System One is a relatively new machine and got its upgrade through Windows Update. Waiting for it was the longest two weeks of my life....

1643148275838.png

The rollout is phased, and depending on how old your machine is and/or any issues with the specific drivers/software installed you may have to wait a bit longer. MS expect the rollout to complete by the middle of the year.

Rolling out the free upgrade to Windows 11 in a phased and measured approach

The free upgrade to Windows 11 starts on October 5 and will be phased and measured with a focus on quality. Following the tremendous learnings from Windows 10, we want to make sure we’re providing you with the best possible experience. That means new eligible devices will be offered the upgrade first. The upgrade will then roll out over time .... We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022.

Cheers Arch and Bree. See my spec for machine. Got the go ahead for upgrade weeks ago after running compat test.

I went into MS store but the only thing I found was Maths for Year 11. It didnt add up, so I left.

If it's a compatible machine, then (when the phased rollout gets round to your turn) it should be offered in Windows Update, like this. If you check for updates it may encourage it to appear.

If your PC is compatible and you can't wait, then you could use the Installation Assistant.


Or download the ISO and perform an in-place upgrade.

Almost all initial incompatibilities of Windows 11 with video games, which are currently supported, are now solved. As for some old games, the problems still may happen and should be solved manually. For example, Windows 11 doesn't have built-in support of DirectX 9, which is counted outdated, but these components can be installed, even though MS released them far before Windows 11.

Windows 11 Pro 22H2 64-bit (build 22621.900)
I am not sure if that applies to your games, but I had a couple of old apps that could not run properly in full screen in Windows 11. The workaround is to right-click the game shortcut and select Properties->Compatibility and check the "Disable fullscreen optimizations". I would also check the "Run as Administrator" box, just in case. To make sure these settings always apply, click the "All users" button and do these for all users.

If you have no t had it yet, it generally means MS are still finding things on your pc that are not ready. you could try updating all drivers but best of all as @Archigos said download the ISO

Windows 11 Pro 22H2 64-bit (build 22621.900)
Simple test: Download the Windows 11 ISO, run Setup. If it proceeds, you are compatible. If you see an error message, you are not but can bypass check and proceed anyway. In general, if your current installation is UEFI, (not Legacy BIOS), you have TMP 2.0 and enabled in BIOS, you have Secure Boot enabled, and your CPU is less than 3 years old, you should be compatible. Anything else is not.

....nothing has happened in update, yet.
You should see something about Windows 11 in Windows Update. Before Windows Update can offer the upgrade the PC has to check itself for compatibility. If that has not yet happened you should see a notice in Windows Update like this:

Get ready for Windows 11.png

When the test has taken place this will be replaced, either with a notice saying that the PC isn't compatible, or if it is with a notice like this:

This PC can run Windows 11.png

That phrase 'as we get it ready for you' can mean one of two things. There may be a blocking issue related to specific software/hardware on your PC, in which case you have to wait for MS to resolve those issues before it will be offered. But in most cases it just means that it's not your turn yet in the phased rollout.

Then it is a matter of just waiting. You can check here to see if there may be any compatibility hold listed for your particular hardware/software.


If not, then it's just that the phased rollout hasn't got round to you yet. If you are impatient and there are no known compatibility holds, then you could upgrade now with the Installation Assistant or an ISO. As Addram recommends, it would be a sensible precaution to make a system image first. Otherwise, just wait for it to be offered.

Windows 11 Pro 22H2 64-bit (build 22621.900)
I remember when I wasn't able to upgrade to Windows 10 v20H1 because my nVidia drivers where outdated. A check in the file version revealed that not all driver components were at the latest version. The fix was to completely remove the graphics drivers using DDU ( Display Driver Uninstaller). Then install latest nVidia drivers. After that all components were at the latest version. I was then offered the upgrade. Maybe you have a similar situation. Make sure you update all your drivers and install all Windows updates and you should be offered to upgrade to Windows 11.

W11 pro beta
Today, I got a Ryzen 5 3600 through the post for my latest build, to replace the Ryzen 5 2600 which I had originally put in it. The pc has been running W10 pro 64 for about 3 weeks and as soon as I had installed the 3600, I reset the pin with my Microsoft account as when a processor is changed and TPM is active you loose the pin. A few minutes later, I was offered the W11 by Microsoft and it installed painlessly and everything I had added is still there. It is just finishing some of the latest updates, KB500853 is downloading now.
If you don't want to take pot luck and wait for Microsoft, then just download an ISO of W11 and use that straight away.
