    PC Health Check - Windows 11


    So I downloaded the PC Health Check app on my Laptop to see if it will run Windows 11 and the message says "This PC can't run Windows 11". So my question is, will there be a workaround to bypass that when Windows 11 comes available to download? I just think that's dumb that it's not compatible, considering this computer is less than a year old. Laptop in reference is an HP 255 G7.

    I also downloaded it to my mom's HP Desktop, and it's not having an issue with compatibility. The message said "This PC can run Windows 11".

    My computer fulfills all the requirements and then some, and still fails the test. Paul Thurrot and Mary Jo Foley have both said that the PC Health app is buggy and broken. So don't sweat it. There is a fuller discussion in the Windows News subforum.

    Also there is now a dedicated Windows 11 Forum - Eleven Forums. The URL is in the singular, though: Windows 11 Forum. It sure would be nice if the Ten Forums were not overrun with Eleven stuff...

    From what I've seen, Windows 11 has virtually no particularly good new features. I think it's a commercial ploy to sell new keys. The weakest point of Windows 10 was the incomplete customization settings (see Windows 7 and registry tweaks at 10) and 11 does not address this issue.

    If MS continue with that way i will keep the 10 and more better i will downgrade to 7 to have all its customizations abilities.

    Yet 11 is supposed to be a free upgrade for some PCs. It's unclear to me whether an upgrade will be possible if the PC fails some of the requirements. (IMHO, they'd be crazy to exclude reasonably decent PCs that are less than 10 years, or even 5 years, old.)

    This isn't intended to support Microsoft. I expect that they want to sell copies of 11, in new PCs. Not new licenses to owners of PCs thare are a few years old.

    There are reports elsewhere on tenforums amongst the multiple threads on Windows 11 citing reputable people saying there are known bugs with the tool.

    That said, note hints here:
    What to do if your computer fails the Windows 11 requirements check
    What’s happened here is that my motherboard didn’t have the Trust Platform Module enabled, making it fail the Windows 11 compatibility check. Microsoft has made it so Windows 11 needs the TPM 2.0 system activated, so we’ll show you how to fix that.

    Making comments about an OS that hasn't even released it's first official test build yet is premature.

    But we have elevenforum.com for exactly that - so come on over there if you want to talk all things Win11.

    Premature? This is about a tool intended to be run on Win 10 - not 11 --- NOW.
