Is it possible to install Windows 11 on unsupported hardware?

By bobbyagbobu ·

I am finding it difficult to run windows 11 on this particular computer because it does not comply with the latest hardware requirement for installing Windows 11. I want to know generally if it's possible to install windows 11 on it?

Might be possible....

...but why would you do that? Save yourself a lot of hassle/time and get a compatible computer instead. Not much different than trying to install Android 11 on a phone that only supports Android 4.0.1. Many of the requirements deal with minimum hardware. If you were able to do so, some of the system elements may become buggy or not work at all. I wouldn't recommend it if you have to or want to run Windows 11.

I'm going with no.

This is a fine way to create a forever going to be problems computer. Wait till Microsoft issues more fixes and hopefully changes its mind about old PC support.

Yes, it's quite well possible, but there are few people who will advise you to do it. But if you really like the new UI with its rounded corners and hate the old one, https://www.howtogeek.com/759925/how-to-install-windows-11-on-an-unsupported-pc/ , for example, tells how to do it. Google will find more helpful sites.
