With its recent public release, Windows 11, many new users appear to be signing up. While some people wish to join them, plenty has gone on the Windows 11 upgrade bandwagon. You may have observed if you are in the same situation, that Windows 11 still requires Secure Boot and TPM. In that regard, this article will talk about fixing system requirements error on Windows 11.
Customers who are compatible cannot upgrade to Windows 11’s new version due to a bug in the media creation tool and Windows update. If you’re experiencing the same issue on your PC, follow these steps to fix it.
This Computer is Currently Unable to Run Windows 11 Due to a Lack of Compatibility
Why is this visible to you on a compatible system? Yeah, this is what you might be likely thinking or asking yourself.
Meanwhile, if you are facing this issue (fixing system requirements error on Windows 11) on a system that passes the PC Health check app test from Microsoft. Then you are likely using the media creation tool or Windows update to update your PCs.
Microsoft has acknowledged this problem as a known one and work to address it is currently in progress. Users are occasionally affected by this error when using the Windows Update tool or the Meda Creation tool to directly update their PC from their local storage on Windows 10.
5 Ways to Resolve Windows 11 Installation Error (This PC doesn’t Currently Meet Requirements)
On a PC that is compatible, you can use the following techniques to fix this error. We advise you to try the first solution as it appears to work for the majority of users.
If switching to another update tool doesn’t help, you can move on to the later fixes described in this guide. Keep enjoying your reading:
Check System Requirements
Make sure your system satisfies all the minimum requirements to run Windows 11 before proceeding to any detailed solutions to fix the “This PC doesn’t currently meet all the system requirements for Windows 11” error.
You should make any necessary changes to your system configuration after checking, then try running the operating system once more. Here is the list of system requirements for windows 11.
====> System: UEFI, with Secure Boot Disk Space: 64GB free space on the drive you want to install Windows 11 on
====> Graphics: WDDM and DX12 compatible 2.0 driver
====> 1GHz or faster processor with 2 or more cores.
====> Make sure your version of Windows 10 is 2004 or later.
====> Make certain that your system satisfies the prerequisites before you attempt to install Windows 11.
====> To use the Assistant to download Windows 11 onto your local storage, make sure your computer has at least 9GB of free disk space.
====> Run the Installation Assistant as an administrator.
====> 4GB or more RAM
====> 2.0 or higher TPM
====> 720p @ 8 bits or higher on the display
Use an alternative way of upgrade
The known solution is to simply use another Microsoft upgrade method because the problem is widespread when using the Media Creation tool or Windows updates.
We advise starting with Microsoft’s brand-new Installation Assistant, a special tool designed to make upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11 simple.
You can update your OS directly using the Installation Assistant by using this detailed guide from us. To update using the same, you will need a functioning internet connection.
We advise using a Windows 11 ISO instead, if update Assistant doesn’t seem to meet your needs or if it gives you the same error. Microsoft has also made available specific ISOs for the new OS, which you can use to upgrade.
Make Sure UEFI is Enabled or Disable CSM in the Boot Menu
When you use older operating systems (OS) that do not support UEFI. The CSM, or compatibility support module, is a BIOS environment that helps your operating system communicate with your hardware.
By establishing a compatible legacy environment, CSM enables your operating system to run effectively on new hardware.
This won’t work for you if you are installing Windows 11, though, as your system needs to have UEFI enabled.
The inability to boot the currently installed operating system on such systems when UEFI is enabled is a major issue.
Therefore, if you have a system like that, we advise you to use this guide to make a bootable USB for Windows 11 before turning on UEFI. Once enabled, boot to your USB drive and upgrade to Windows 11 on your computer.
Install Windows 11 on Unsupported Systems using MCT.bat script
Windows 11 can also be set up on unsupported platforms. If you are unable to meet any requirements, we advise using the.bat script.
If you are able to meet the minimal requirements, we advise using the registry hack. This is the official method suggested by Microsoft for getting around Windows 11’s prerequisites and installing it on your computer. Choose a guide that best satisfies your requirements and needs at the time.
The community has been given access to a new script that significantly simplifies the process of installing, updating, and upgrading Windows 11 on unsupported hardware.
The script has a cool GUI to guide you through the process, and all procedures to bypass checks are carried out automatically in the background.
The original workarounds for getting around Windows 11 checks have recently been blocked by Microsoft. But this script still functions as intended and depending on your circumstances. Here is how you can use it to your advantage.
1 ====> Download the Script
The Media CreationTool.bat archive link, which includes all the tools required to assist with the upgrade, is what you need. By using your preferred web browser to access the link, you can download the same file.
When the Github page has loaded, locate and click on the Code on the left and then “Download ZIP.” The archive will now be downloaded to your PC, where we advise you to extract it in a location that is practical for you.
This is depending on your current circumstance, you can then adhere to one of the pertinent guides listed below.
NOTE: The script will require the official Windows 11 ISO, which will be downloaded automatically in the background while it creates new media or upgrades your computer. Nevertheless, this will take some time, and depending on your network speeds, you might have to wait for an hour or more.
2 ====> Bypass Checks When Updating to Windows 11 from Windows 10
Run the “MediaCreationTool.bat” file by double-clicking it in the MCT.bat folder that we earlier extracted.
====> Click on ‘Run’ once you are prompted.
====> Your system will now launch a command window as well as a Powershell-based GUI. On your screen, click the OS list, then choose “11“.
====> Now click on Auto Upgrade
That’s it! Now that the procedure is being completed in the background, you can sit back and unwind.
The setup will automatically download the required ISO to your system and launch while the background patches are being installed. After that, simply carry out the setup as directed to have Windows 11 automatically upgrade your computer.
3 ====> Bypass all Checks on Windows 11 ISO
Here is how to create a Windows 11 ISO that has already been patched, allowing you to install the operating system on unsupported hardware by skipping all installation checks.
====> Double-clicking ‘MediaCreationTool.bat’ in the archive we previously extracted will start it.
====> Now click on 11
====> Select Make ISO
====> In the “Downloads” folder, the script and background process will automatically create a patched ISO for you if you let the process run its course.
4 ====> Bypass all checks on Windows 11 USB drive
Use this guide to get started if you want to create a Windows 11 USB.
====> Connect the USB drive of your choice
====> Then format it once to erase all the data it contains. By double-clicking on the MediaCreationTool.bat script, we can now run it from the archive we extracted earlier.
====> Click on Run anyway when prompted
====> Now click on 11
====> Click on Make USB
NOTE: Make sure that your PC is only connected to the relevant USB, or else the tool might choose another USB on your system.
Now just take a seat, unwind, and allow the process to run its course. In the command window on your screen, you can keep an eye on the progress for the same.
5 ====> Bypass checks on an already created USB or ISO for Windows 11
We advise using the instructions below in its place if you have already downloaded the ISO file or made a bootable USB for the Windows 11 installation.
By doing this, when using the MediaCreationTool.bat script on your PC, you won’t need to download the ISO again. Let’s get going.
====> Open the bypass11 folder in the archive we extracted earlier by going to that location
====> Now double click and run the ‘Quick_11_iso_esd_wim_TPM_toggle.bat’ file.
====> A command window that is unable to locate your ISO or USB stick will now appear. Do not worry; we had to do this in order to add the script to the context menu that appears when you right-click.
====> Now locate the desired ISO and perform a right-click. If you have a USB drive with Windows 11 on it, open it, go to the Sources folder, and right-click on “install.wim” there. Then select Show more options.
====> Now select Quick_11_iso_esd_wim_TPM_toggle.bat from the Send to context menu.
The script will automatically patch the chosen ISO or USB drive. Once patched, you can continue with the PC upgrade and launch the Windows 11 setup as intended.
6 ====> Bypass Checks when Installing Feature Updates in Windows 11
If you already installed Windows 11 on your computer without going through the proper checks, you might be disappointed to learn that Microsoft actively prevents new feature updates on unsupported hardware.
Fortunately, you can install feature updates on your system and skip these checks by using this script. You can use the starter guide below to get going.
====> Go to the extracted archive and click the ‘bypass11’ folder.
====> Now double click and launch the script Skip_TPM_Check_on_Dynamic_Update.cmd.
====> Confirm your choice to get past UAC.
====> When the PowerShell window opens and you are asked to do so, press a key on your keyboard. When you first execute the script, the disclaimer at the top should be green.
====> Your PC will now automatically apply the adjustments. Your system can now be upgraded as planned. Once you have upgraded your system, it is advised that you undo the changes done by this script.
====> Now, double-click Skip TPM Check on Dynamic Update.cmd once more to undo the changes. The disclaimer should be highlighted in red at the top this time.
====> To undo the modifications made to your system, only press a key on your keyboard.
====> Once your system has undergone the required changes, the script will immediately terminate.
That’s all, then! Now, without any problems, you can use your PC as intended.
Install Windows 11 on Unsupported Systems using the Registry Bypass Hack
If you satisfy all of the prerequisites for Windows 11, you can install the operating system without complying with the TPM and Secure Boot requirements. Windows formally permit this while informing you that doing so leaves you open to security risks.
There is not a lot of information available on the subject, but as of right now, it appears that doing so will prevent you from receiving any future security and privacy upgrades from Microsoft. You must disable the system check in the TPM and Secure Boot registry to accomplish this.
NOTE: Because this hack requires modifying registry values, we advise creating a backup of those variables before continuing with the guide.
Now, let’s explore the process together:
====> Open the Registry Editor and go to this address:
====> Here, add a new AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU DWORD (32-bit) Value.
====> Change the Value data from 0 to 1 by double-clicking on the new Value to edit it
====> Then click OK to save it.
Restart your computer after that, and then use the Windows 11 Installation Assistant to try to install Windows 11 right away. You can also use the Windows 11 ISO file if you choose.
The approach described above is actually the best one because Microsoft themselves recommended it.
However, you can modify the Windows 11 ISO file to prevent it from verifying the Secure Boot and TPM requirements and install the Windows 11 upgrade right away if you’re uncomfortable altering a registry file.
We hope that this article has helped you become more familiar with the new incompatibility problem that Windows 11 installers encounter. Please leave a remark in the section below if you have any additional queries.
