How do I know if my computer of Windows 10 can be install to Windows 11? Will it immediatly update to the new Windows 11 version if yes? I have checked updates and installed all. However I am still got Windows 10. Nothing pops out to say I want to install Windows 11 or not. So a lot of people are saying about compatible hardware. How to check mine compatible?
A lot of PCs with Windows 10 running on it fail on the TPM 2.0 requirement part, although these are fairly capable machines. Even newer ones that are more than powerful enough (e.g. gaming machines) that don’t have the required TPM version so those fail the compatiblity check too. TPM is Trusted Platform Module and Microsoft’s minimum requirement for Windows 11 is version 2.0.
Then there is also the supported processor (CPU) where a number also fall short on with older hardware.
With the impending release of Windows 11, a lot of information has been thrown into the Internet leading up to the release date set on Tuesday – October 5, 2021. Which can be quite confusing with all that fanfare especially about the TPM 2.0 confusion.
There are a few things you can do to determine compatiblity from Microsoft. Read the official minimum system requirements – https://www.microsoft.com/en-ph/windows/windows-11-specifications#table1 – which is provided by Microsoft for Windows 11 compatibility. There is also a link there on how TPM 2.0 might be enabled on your machine.
You can also read more about the Windows 11 upgrade at the following official Microsoft pages:
If you do not want to read through all that content, Microsoft has also provided a quick way to check for Windows 11 compatiblity via a PC Health Check app. Download, install and then run the tool to get the results. It is only a few MB in size. Download link here: https://aka.ms/GetPCHealthCheckApp or you can also find the same information in #1 link in the list above (If you’ve only read it, right?).
