Now install Windows 11 on any device! Here’s how you can bypass TPM, CPU, and RAM requirements.
We present the easiest top two ways you can upgrade or clean install Windows 11 on any PC, no requirement.
Microsoft first released windows 11 in 2021, approaching a more innovative and unique way to the OS on PCs. The whole windows are new, refreshed, and smoother in terms of design, with many new features, better multitasking, gaming, animation, performance, and so much more. And in the latest version, you can even run android applications on the OS. But, there is a catch to getting all of this in your device, especially if it runs an older generation.
So, Microsoft has announced a strict requirement to run the newer windows. The processor should be at least one gigahertz (GHz) or faster, have two cores, and, most importantly, one Intel 8th generation or above and AMD Ryzen 2000 series or higher. You can get the complete requirement here. With all the RAM, storage, Graphics card, display, etc. requirements, there is a distinguished requirement; TPM.
So, what is TPM?
TPM stands for Trusted Platform Module, which identifies the computer’s security level. In older generations, TPM is a separate chip on the motherboard. Still, in newer generations, 8th and more recent, the chip’s capability is taken from the processor built-in rather than having a separate block for it.
Fact: It’s been twenty years since TPM was part of the computer. Only a few regular people noticed until Microsoft put its requirement on windows 11 PCs.
So, what TPM version is required to run the latest Windows 11?
The answer to this is version 2.0, at least which intel 8th gen or higher has. From PCs made in 2016, you can run the windows version with ease.
What version of TPM does your PC have?
If your PC is older than 2016, it will run a version lower than 2.0 (mostly 1.2). But you can also check which version of TPM your PC runs.
In Windows 11, you can start by going to Start > Settings > Privacy & Security > Windows Security > Device Security. Here you will see the label Security Processor. Voila! This is the TPM your PC has. Now click Security processor details, and you will see the Specification version, which can vary from 1.2 to 2.0. See below:
Ways you can bypass the TPM requirement to install Windows 11 on any PC.
Microsoft had a strict requirement of PCs having TPM 2.0 version. Even the virtual machines running portable OS will not be able to run the Windows. The error displayed is “this PC doesn’t currently meet Windows 11 system requirements”. Worry no more. With our guide, we present two top simple way to upgrade or clean install the windows on your PC the easiest way possible. No need to go long registry hacks or hacking windows update settings.
1. Bypass windows 11 TPM/ RAM/ CPU Requirement by Rufus
Rufus can help in creating a bootable USB for windows disk ISO file. The newer Rufus version can disappear the TPM, RAM, and CPU requirements. Rufus can perform that if you want to clean and install new windows or upgrade your older OS to the more recent 11.
For this, you would need at least 16GB of USB storage. The steps to disable the requirements are as follows:
- Install Rufus from here on your PC.
- Attach the USB disk.
- Open the Rufus software.
- First, select the USB device you want to make bootable from the Device.
- Select the boot selection to Disk or ISO image.
- Then click SELECT, and attach the windows 11 ISO file.
- Or you can download windows 11 by clicking DOWNLOAD.
- Select Windows 11, click the latest release, edition, preferred language, continue, and architecture x64.
- Hit download.
- After downloading, click on the image option and select Extended Windows 11 Installation (no TPM/no Secure Boot/8GB- RAM).
- After reviewing everything hit START.
- Job done!
2. Bypass Windows 11 TPM/ RAM/ CPU requirement the right way via the windows itself
If you have an older CPU before 2016, and your TPM version is 1.2, there is a hack you can do. Microsoft has introduced a hack to do this via registry. This removes the TPM requirements. Just follow these:
- First, open Regedit.
- Now search for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup and open it.
3. Now you might need to create a Value named AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU for DWORD (32-bit) file (if it isn’t there).
4. Set the value of this AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU file to value data: 1.
5. Close the registry and restart your PC.
6. Your PC is ready to upgrade to Windows 11 from Windows 10 itself via the media you want (USB or Disk or Setup).
