How to Get Around Windows 11’s Needs?

This guide shows you three ways to get around Microsoft’s hardware requirements so you can install Windows 11 on almost any PC.

Bypassing Windows 11 Requirements

One way to get around the Windows 11 requirements is to change your PC’s registry. Another way is much simpler. Because of this, it’s the best option for people who aren’t sure how to change their PC’s data.

If you are familiar with making changes to the registry, you can review how to add, change, and clear registry keys and values before you start.

How to Bypass Windows 11 Requirements Using Rufus

The first way, which is also the easiest, is to use a tool called Rufus. This tool will help you burn an ISO file to a USB drive, which will make it easy to install Windows 11 without meeting Microsoft’s requirements.

  1. Download and open the app Rufus. At the time of writing, version 3.22 is the latest. It’s needed to download the needed Windows 11 files.

  2. Select the USB device you want to use. A blank 16GB or large USB stick is recommended.

  3. Ensure the Boot selection option shows Disk or ISO image, and then click Download.

  4. Select Windows 11 as the version, the most recent build under Release, and then the Windows 11 edition you want to use, as well as the language you need. You’ll also need to select your PC’s Architecture and click Download.

  5. After the download completes, click on the Image option drop-down and select Extended Windows 11 Installation (no TPM/no Secure Boot/8GB- RAM). Double-check that you have selected the drive you want to install it to, and then click Start at the bottom.

Once the process is done, you can safely remove the USB drive from the PC and plug it into the computer where you want to install Windows 11. If you want to change the version of Windows on a computer, run the setup.exe file from the USB drive. But if you want to do a clean update, you’ll need to start your PC from the drive.

Ignore Windows 11 Requirements in Windows Update

If you want to install Windows 11 through Windows Update, you’ll need to use a script by GitHub user AveYo that was made by a third party. Take these steps to get around the rules:

  1. Navigate to AveYo’s Media Creation Tool Github page and click the Copy raw contents button, which looks like two squares on top of each other (located next to a trash can icon).

  2. On your desktop, right-click and choose New > Text Document and name it skip_tpm.cmd. Make sure it is a .cmd file and not saving as a .txt file.

    The right-click menu displayed showing New and Text Document highlighted.
  3. Open the file with Notepad and paste the code that you copied from github into it. Save and run it.

  4. Allow the app to make changes to your device if a prompt appears, and once it finishes, you’ll be able to upgrade Windows 11 using Windows update.

Bypass Windows 11 TPM with Microsoft’s Official Workaround

As mentioned above, Microsoft has also made an “official workaround” available to get around the TPM Check that Windows 11 requires. But it will only work if your PC has at least TPM 1.2. You have to change your PC’s registry to use this method, which can be hard if you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s why the method above, which uses Rufus to download the ISO, is the best way to get around Windows 11 requirements.

Follow these steps to use Microsoft’s Registry Edit to get around them:

  1. Open Regedit on your PC and then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/Setup/MoSetup.

  2. Here you will need to right-click and select New, then DWORD (32-bit) Value and name it AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU if it isn’t already there.

    Steps to add a DWORD value in Regedit on with New and DWORD highlighted in the menu.
  3. After creating the Value (or if it already exists) click on it and set the Value data field to 1.

  4. Now close regedit and restart your PC. It should now allow you to update to Windows 11 through Windows 10, even if you don’t meet the requirements.
