  1. Hi, do we agree that for a non-compatible PC, the Windows 11 that will be installed will not be maintained by Microsoft? (no update?) I am disappointed, having a high-performance pc but from 2019, these restrictions are painful.
    In any case, thank you for your good tutorials .

  2. Hello,
    I acquired my pc 1 year ago and unfortunately I can’t install windows 11, my BIOS is not UEFI configured but in legacy mode, as much to say that I am very disappointed because my pc has all the conditions required other than that.

  3. I’m very satisfied with the various aids offered, thanks to you I was able to easily install Windows 11 on my 2-year-old Acer laptop despite an unsupported I3 CPU.
    Thanks again

  4. This update is simply intolerable.
    Go on ! buy a new PC!! (mine is from 2019), because that’s still the goal set by Microsoft, right ?

  5. If your PC dates from after 2016, you must go to the BIOS to activate the TPM 2.0 process.
    This will make the update compatible.
    Have a good day

  6. Having a recent AMD processor and motherboard, I upgraded to Windows 11 with no difficulty…but I temporarily reverted to Windows 10. This is done easily and very quickly because i have some problems using the Adobe software for my phots project. Adobe is not, for the moment, part of the software compatible with Windows 11.
