After a long 4 month wait since the unveiling of the Windows 11, Microsoft finally released the new OS to end users.
Windows 11 has a high requirement list for PCs that want to run the new OS.
Some old hardware are bound to be left out as the requirements demands higher TPM (Trusted Platform Module) support. Interestingly enough, there is a way to bypass that.
All you need to do is add a registry key value into your machine.
If you decide to do this, be aware that your machine may run the risk of going haywire if you did something wrong in the registry.
If you decide to go ahead anyway, these are the steps you must follow;
- Open the registry editor like in the picture, then click on the search result once the program appears.
Alternatively, press Windows + R to open the Run command window, type regedit, and press OK.
- Press Yes when User Account Control pops up.
- Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\MoSetup.
- Right-click on the right-hand panel and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) value.
- Type AllowUpgradesWithUnsupportedTPMOrCPU as the Value name.
- Type 1 as the Value data. Leave the Base as Hexadecimal.
- Press Ok and close the Registry Editor.
