Only 8th gen and above are officially supported I believe.

😭😭 any solutions

lots ,look at youtube 😉

I'm sure I've seen screenshots of people running the beta version with older processors. Although I'm not sure exactly what/how they did it.

im using window 11 for 3 months crack version but i want to use officially released

I’m running the RTM perfectly fine on about 7 4-7th gen here at home, clean install only though no upgrade possible. TPM 1.2 and 2.0 mix all SSD windows is shit any way isn’t it 😂 my macs win all day

might give it a try on a spare drive just for fun 🤷‍♂️😂😁

I just wiped my optiplex 3050 installed on the nvme in 3 minutes!

explain in simple words i m not computer science bro

to have it work properly you need to purchase a suitable machine T450 is just too old. Runs perfectly ion 8th gen quad core, wouldn’t really use a shitty dual core with windows 11 it will struggle going forward. Plus every upgrade will either be a reload or a bodge. My old 5th gen machines struggled with Win10 so wouldn’t push it too far

Needs Intel 8th gen cpu/2nd ryzen/uefi/secure boot and TPM 2.0 (it works and installed with 1.2 however from my testing)

It works just fine on T450s. I've installed Win11 on machines as old as X200, which also works just fine.

There are even official instructions from Microsoft on how to do it. But, there are caveats of course. You are absolutely on your own if you do that and there is no support from Lenovo either.

you can’t upgrade, it’s a fresh install and there is a hard tpm requirement, unless you want to interchange w10 dlls. Tbh a 4/5th gen machine is just old now I get them free and struggle to sell them on, dual core really sucks on a modern OS…even my £20 T570 sucks ass for performance, thankfully my apprentice is having it off me..slow isn’t the word even with 16Gb ram and NVMe, all the guys at work left on the old 7th gen kit moan how slow it is

I've been clean installing Win11 on all kinds of machines since the first Insider build dropped. Microsoft have provided a way to both clean install and upgrade your current OS, unsupported too.

And Windows 11 runs just as well on any machine that runs Windows 10, so your argument is moot.
